The Queen's Cartoonists / The Nixon Centre for the Arts

The Queen's Cartoonists play music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation.  The performances are synchronized to video projections of the original films, and the bad leads the audience through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and comedy.

Behind the project is a single question:  is it possible to create jazz and classical music in the 21st century that appeals to everyone, even people who normally wouldn't go to concerts?  The Queen's Cartoonists present a concert for everybody--regardless of age, gender, or familiarity with the concert hall.

Tying this diverse concert together are comedic anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers.  The band is on a musical mission of equal parts:  performance, preservation, and education.  Expect the unexpected from a repertoire that includes the Golden Age of animation, cult cartoon classics, modern animation, and elements of a musical circus!

 The event is part of the Centre Stage Series - A Complimentary Event.
