All Classical Cartoon Festival99.5 All Classical Cartoon Festival
Saturday, Oct. 23, 10am-4pm, Boston's Symphony Hall

Do you remember who introduced you to classical music? For some of us, it was Bugs Bunny, coaxing flowers from the head of a frantic Elmer Fudd in Rabbit of Seville. Or maybe it was Elmer's rousing rendition of "Kill the Wabbit" in What's Opera, Doc?, sung to the tune of Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries."

This month, 99.5 All Classical presents the 12th-annual Cartoon Festival where kids of all ages can enjoy their favorite Warner Brothers cartoons set to classical music on a giant screen, along with live performances, storytellers, and more.
