Bring the family and join us for this fun event full of great music! The Queen’s Cartoonists offer a tour-de-force of the Swing Era’s zaniest and most creative music, much of which was written for or adapted for classic cartoons. The band’s repertoire includes cartoon music from the 1920’s all the way to the present day, and includes composers Raymond Scott, Carl Stalling, John Kirby, Danny Elfman, John Williams, Alf Clausen, and countless classical favorites! Whether you’re a fan of Looney Tunes, Merry Melodies, The Simpsons, or the old Disney classics, you’ll find something to swing along to! The six cats of The Queen’s Cartoonists are on a musical mission consisting of equal parts music preservation, music education, and live performance. The heyday of swing music may be in the past, but this music survives in the memories of anyone who grew up watching cartoons or listening to classical music.
