What’s up, doc? You might not realise it – but if you’re a fan of The Simpsons, Bugs Bunny or Tom and Jerry, you’ve probably heard enough classical music to fill a concert! And this is that concert – from Rossini’s barnstorming William Tell to the magical music of Disney’s Fantasia by Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Elgar and Dukas. But that’s not all, folks! Join us as we pack a whole evening full of looney tunes, silly symphonies and merry melodies, presented by comedian, TV personality and all-round entertainer Sue Perkins – she might just get to take a turn on the podium, alongside Birmingham’s own Michael Seal.
