What are your warmest, fuzziest memories from childhood? The memory of crawling out of bed in your cozy pyjamas, pouring yourself a bowl of cereal, and watching Saturday morning cartoons can sure warm a dark winter morning as an adult. And they’ll be right back because Arts Commons Presents is upgrading your childhood Saturday morning experience! How about adding a jazz concert to watching cartoons in Jack Singer Hall?!

Shows at Calgary’s Arts Commons transport us to another world. Here you can listen to the classical sounds of the symphony, enjoy a children’s show, or watch a drama unfold. From concerts to lectures, your whole family will enjoy the unique and engaging shows from Arts Commons Presents. On January 26, 2023, get your tickets for The Queen’s Cartoonists and a show the whole family will enjoy.

Arts Commons Presents (Family Fun Calgary)

Music has always been the background of our entertainment, and cartoons are no exception. Many kids’ shows introduce jazz and classical music themes and have played the best of music through the years. Since hand-drawn animation began, jazz has provided the bouncy, playful, or even sometimes suspenseful, music behind your favourite cartoons. The Queen’s Cartoonists (named after their borough of origin in New York) celebrate the role of jazz music in over 100 years of animation history. Travel around the world as they provide a live soundtrack for characters like Betty Boop, Bugs Bunny, The Flintstones, and even your favourite wall-crawling superhero. You might even catch some familiar pieces of  Canadian animation! The Queen’s Cartoonists offer a heartfelt tribute to jazz in animation, combined with comedic anecdotes about the cartoonists and composers, making for an evening of excellent entertainment across all generations.

This January, enjoy classic cartoons with your kids and The Queen’s Cartoonists. It’s a dose of nostalgia for you and an evening of fun for the whole family. Get your tickets from Arts Commons Presents before they sell out!
