“Music from Classic Cartoons”
The Queen’s Cartoonists perform music from classic and modern cartoons. Represented are genres such as early Disney (“The Skeleton Dance”), classic Warner Brothers (“The Rabbit of Seville”, “What’s Opera, Doc?”), cult classics (“Bambi Meets Godzilla”), and more modern cartoons (The Simpsons and others). Featured composers include Raymond Scott, Carl Stalling, Danny Elfman, Alf Clausen, John Williams, and countless adaptations of classical favorites!
The music runs the gamut from lightning fast swing arrangements to sync’d video projections, vocal numbers, and comedy. Tying this diverse and challenging repertoire together are stories and anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers. The six cats of the band are on a musical mission of equal parts music preservation, education, and performance. The Queen’s Cartoonists tap into the rich tradition of cartoon music to bring a fun, cross-generational concert experience to any and all who will listen!
