THE QUEEN'S CARTOONISTS

February 11, 2018 Temple Theater
Get Tickets

The Queen’s Cartoonists are a jazz band specializing in music from cartoons.  The music runs the gamut from lightning fast swing arrangements to sync’d video projections, vocal numbers, and comedy.  Be prepared for music from classic Warner Brothers cartoons, early Disney films, cult cartoon classics, and modern animation.  Featured composers include Raymond Scott, Carl Stalling, Danny Elfman, Alf Clausen, John Williams, and countless adaptations of classical favorites!

Tying this diverse and challenging repertoire together are stories and anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers.  The band is 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!  

TQC has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, and on NPR.  They have been bringing their unique (yet nostalgic) sound to performing arts centers and schools all over the US.
