The music is so brilliant.

The Huffington Post

This popular concert has been touring the world with sold-out performances for three decades, and now returns to Sarasota Orchestra in a newly-revised 30th Anniversary Edition. This critically-acclaimed production projects the world's most iconic Looney Tunes on the big screen, while the orchestra plays the classically-infused original scores live! From "What's Opera, Doc?" and "The Rabbit of Seville," to "Baton Bunny," "Corny Concerto," "Rhapsody Rabbit," and "Long-Haired Hare," don't miss the brilliant cartoons that first introduced classical music to much of the American public. Plus five brand new animated shorts, newly-created by the Warner Bros. animators in celebration of Bugs Bunny's 80th Birthday in 2020.

 Literally gripping the arms of my seat, I was not the only one propelled on this rollercoaster of delightful music.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 Every section and soloist within the orchestra played their role with strength and beauty; every tree proud and tall. Tali served as an excellent guide leading the forces with assured confidence. The overall sound was lush and, yes, intense just where it needed to be.

 The Sarasota Orchestra was brimming with bubbling energy...

 A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.

 It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.  

Written byThe Observer

 Andrew Lane, the Orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor, knows how to program a winning event and this concert had something for everyone. It also brought in a whole new audience that seemed dazzled by the performances.  

Written byThe Observer

 The Sarasota Orchestra played a program this past weekend filled with so much color, it was like visiting the Louvre.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 The performance... was exceptional, bringing new and stunning sonorities from a larger than usual Sarasota Orchestra under the dynamic leadership of Anu Tali.
