It's going to be fast, really fast! DR's “Mr. Cartoon” Jakob Stegelmann unleashes all your favourite characters from the world of cartoons and animated films in the Concert Hall - together with a strong fusion of musicians and singers from DR's choirs and orchestras.

Cartoons are for children and adults alike - and the music in them is at least as entertaining as the pictures! It will be fun, touching, crazy and dramatic when the Concert Hall is filled with living lines drawn in tones in the big room. The DR Symphony Orchestra, DR Big Band and DR Vocal Ensemble have joined forces to take you to a party in the cartoon universes.

Don't miss the colourful music from the films How to Train Your Dragon, Wall-e, Toy Story, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Prince of Egypt, Jungle book, Tom and Jerry, and many more.
