Be our guest for Picnic with the Pops

PWPSunsetIf you’re like me, some of your earliest exposure to classical music was during Saturday morning cartoons.

I especially remember classic Looney Tunes episodes with Bugs Bunny: The Rabbit of Seville, for instance, or What’s Opera, Doc? (where Elmer Fudd sings “Kill the Wabbit” to Richard Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries).

Just hearing a few notes from these classics brings back fun childhood memories. I’ll bet that it does for many of you as well.

Now, you can relive those memories with a few of your friends from Lowell’s.

PWPBugsTowerFor two nights under the stars each August, Picnic with the Pops features our own Lexington Philharmonic with a special guest artist at Keeneland’s Meadow at Keene Barn.

This year’s special guest? None other than Bugs Bunny in a critically-acclaimed show that combines classic “Looney Tunes” cartoons with live music from the Philharmonic.

Following its premiere three weeks ago at the Hollywood Bowl, the Los Angeles Times called Bugs Bunny at the Symphony “a program that delights all ages.”

This year’s Picnic featuring Bugs will be on Friday, August 16th and Saturday, August 17th. Find out all of the details about Picnic with the Pops here. It should be a great show.

And the best part?
