Conductor/creator George Daugherty brings the music from vintage Bugs Bunny cartoons to Jones Hall today during Bugs Bunny at the Symphony. Many of the Looney Tunes cartoons featured original scores by Carl Stalling and Milt Franklyn, inspired by classical music masterpieces. During today's concert, the animated versions are screened overhead while the Houston Symphony performs the soundtrack. "The Rabbit of Seville" and "What's Opera Doc?" as well as "Rhapsody Rabbit" are on the program, along with music and films featuring other members of the Warner Bros. cartoon family, such as The Flintstones, Tom and Jerry and Scooby-Doo.
Make the jump for more musical fun with Bugs Bunny.
And just in case you've forgotten proper concert etiquette, Bugs has a reminder.
