But if you like hearing your music in a live setting while watching your Looney Tunes, then you’ll want to find an orchestral performance of Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II, which still has 21 more concerts lined up in 12 U.S./Canada cities through the Spring of 2016.

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of these popular concert events, created by conductor George Daugherty and David Ka Lik Wong. Originally launched as Bugs Bunny on Broadway in 1990, which resulted in an extended run on The Great White Way, the show was rechristened in 2010 as Bugs Bunny at the Symphony and updated to the current moniker Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II since 2013.

All told, this groundbreaking live music and film presentation has played before millions of fans in some of the most revered and prestigious venues in the world, including Australia’s Sydney Opera House, Russia’s Kremlin Palace, London’s Royal Festival Hall and our own Hollywood Bowl. In addition, more than 150 different orchestras have taken part in these worldwide performances. Take a look at this clip featuring the New York Philharmonic.
