If you live in the DC Metro area and loved Looney Tunes cartoons as a kid and want to relive your childhood, I have been offered a family 4 pack of tickets for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra performance of Bugs Bunny on Broadway at Merriweather Post Pavillion on Saturday, July 11
The concert will feature Warner Brother’s Studio cartoons on big screens while their original film scores are performed live by the BSO. “Bugs Bunny on Broadway is the perfect way to introduce your child to classical music through classic Warner Brothers cartoons and favorite characters like Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, and Porky Pig.
This unique concert will feature musical masterpieces of Wagner, Rossini, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, and others, as interpreted through the “hare-raising” cartoon scores of legendary Warner Bros. Studios composers Carl Stalling and Milt Franklyn, in such iconic Looney Tunes as “What’s Opera, Doc?,” “The Rabbit of Seville,” “Corny Concerto,” “Baton Bunny,” “Long-Haired Hare,” “High Note,” and many more.
Bugs Bunny on Broadway made its debut at The Gershwin Theatre in 1990. Now almost two million people worldwide have seen this concert in performances with the world’s greatest orchestras. It has been called “hilarious” by The New York Times and “spectacular” by The New York Post.
Spending a Saturday evening under the stars introducing classical music with my kids with some free tickets sounds pretty good to me!
Enter to win by leaving a comment telling me which Looney Tunes character you loved most. Comments will be accepted until Midnight on Thursday, July 2 and the winner will be notified on July 3.
Thanks to Merriweather Post Pavillion for providing tickets for this giveaway and sending my family to the show!
