While your favorite Looney Tunes tickle your funny bone on the big screen, hear the Houston Symphony play the fantastical mixture of classical and modern symphony pieces that originally scored these iconic cartoons – live! It’s the perfect introduction to the symphony for a young family, and it’s sure to feature some classical deep cuts you never expected to star alongside the most famous rabbit in the world.

Conducted and created by George Daugherty, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony took the symphony orchestra world by storm, and pioneered the brand new concept of “live orchestra and big screen” concerts. Since its legendary Broadway premiere at The Gershwin Theatre, the original concert has circumnavigated the globe several times over, playing to millions of people worldwide in iconic venues.
