What a fabulous way to end the POPS 25th Anniversary Season than with the sounds we all associate with fun, laughter and lighthearted entertainment.
All of us started out in early childhood experiencing the wonder of Saturday morning’s best entertainment. Cartoons were vessels of laughter, joy, action, and adventure delivered through a fun package of colorful animated characters and wrapped in some of our most memorable music. Many famous cartoons dating back to the 1930’s brought their characters to life to the tune of classical music like Brahm’s Hungarian Dances (WB Looney Tunes “Pigs in a Polka” c. 1943), Bugs Bunny’s memorable performance of Rossini’s Barber of Seville Overture in “The Rabbit of Seville” (WB Looney Tunes c. 1946) and Elmer Fudd’s astonishing 1957 performance in WB’s “Kill The Wabbit” (Wagner’s Flight of the Valkeries).
Maestro Joseph Place and the Prescott POPS Symphony will perform a marvelous program of toon tunes from the past that will make you smile…and the specifics are to be a surprise! So get your tickets and pretend you’re going to Corny-Gie Hall with Porky Pig and Bugs for the Corny Concerto…That’s All Folks!
