With virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and large doses of comedy, The Queen’s Cartoonists will change the way your family sees (and hears) the Sunday funnies. Join them for a live outdoor concert on the Hylton on the Hill and hear this fun-loving sextet from Queens, New York, perform favorites from classic cartoons and contemporary animation set to video projections of the original films. Buoyed by a shared love of classical music and animation, the ensemble was formed in 2015 and designed a concert experience for everyone to enjoy—regardless of age, musical knowledge, or previous concert attendance. If you can’t hear the familiar chords of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville without picturing a big-eared, rascally rabbit, this is the concert for you! “As I watched The Queen’s Cartoonists slip and slide through decades of cartoon music in a matter of minutes…I followed a captivated crowd of young and old consciously connect what they were watching with what they were hearing. The pleasure of the perfect synchrony of sound and pictures was instantly recognizable,” (Mashable).


Enjoy these performances in your own seating area, physically distanced from other audience members. The maximum audience size is 200. Complete information about what to expect when you attend an event at Hylton on the Hill: https://hyltoncenter.org/outdoor-performances
