THE QUEEN’S CARTOONISTS

Thu

March

5th

The Queen’s Cartoonists will play music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation. The performances are synchronized to video projections of the original films, and the band leads the audience through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem and comedy. Tying this diverse concert together are comedic anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers. Behind the project is a single question: Is it possible to create jazz and classical music in the 21st century that appeals to everyone? This is a concert for everybody, regardless of age, gender or familiarity with the concert hall. Expect the unexpected from a repertoire that will include the Golden Age of animation, cult cartoon classics, modern animation and elements of a musical circus!
