The Vail Series welcomes The Queen’s Cartoonists.

Notice: this information is for a past event.
Ticket Info:
Tickets on sale August 3

Are there age restrictions to enjoy cartoons? Of course not! What better way to kick off our Vail Series season than to celebrate one of the earliest ways we all encountered music, in the world of animation.
The world-class musicians of The Queen’s Cartoonists play classical and jazz music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation. Synchronized to projections of the original films are just feet away from the audience in Swasey Chapel.
So sit back, relax, and let The Queen’s Cartoonists take you through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and comedy.
All events subject to change. Audience members will be subject to Denison COVID guidelines in place at the time.
Tickets and Season Passes are free for Denison students, faculty and staff.

We share these experiences with our larger community by making a limited number of tickets available for public sale on a first come, first served basis for $15 each. No refunds or exchanges. Season tickets for all five Vail performances are available at a discounted rate of $60 available August 3 - October 6.  Visit this link for season ticket information

The Vail Series was endowed in 1979 by a generous gift from the late Mary and Foster McGaw in honor of Jeanne Vail, class of 1946. Just as it was intended to do, the Series enriches the artistic experience of the entire Denison community. Programmed creatively with the mindful pursuit of learning across traditional academic boundaries, more than 100 individual Vail Series artists have found their way to Denison’s classrooms and stages, but that doesn’t include the dozens of ensembles or full symphony orchestras that have played here over the years.
