Join Arizona Arts Live and the Century Room for a one-of-a-kind experience as projections of animated films dazzle while the Queen’s Cartoonists recreate original soundtracks note-for-note. Watch as new life is breathed into two uniquely American forms of art: jazz and animation.
Pulling from over 100 years of animation, the Queen’s Cartoonists perfectly synchronize music to films projected on stage. The band matches the energy of the cartoons, leading audiences through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and comedy. Tying everything together is the TQC brand of comedy – anecdotes about the cartoons and their composers, stream-of-consciousness humor, and elements of a musical circus.
Watch your favorite classic cartoon characters interact with the musicians on stage, and expect the unexpected from the Golden Age of Animation, cult cartoon classics, and modern animated films. Inspired by the crossroads of jazz, classical music, and cartoons, TQC features Jazz Age composers like Carl Stalling, Raymond Scott, and Duke Ellington, alongside classical giants Mozart, Rossini, and R. Strauss (to name just a few).GET TICKETS
