Our Policies - Attending a Show


The Queen’s Cartoonists play music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation. The performances are synchronized to video projections of the original films, and the band leads the audience through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and comedy.
Behind the project is a single question is it possible to create jazz and classical music in the 21st century that appeals to everyone? Even people who normally wouldn’t go to concerts? The Queen’s Cartoonists present a concert for everybody – regardless of age, gender, or familiarity with the concert hall.

Tying this diverse concert together are comedic anecdotes involving the cartoons and their composers. The band is on a musical mission of equal parts performance, preservation, and education. Expect the unexpected from repertoire that includes the Golden Age of animation, cult cartoon classics, modern animation, and elements of a musical circus!

Since their inception in 2015, The Queen’s Cartoonists have brought their unique sound to performing arts centers in over 20 states and have opened for the New York Philharmonic. The 6 members, all currently living in Queens, New York, are world-class professional musicians. The band has been featured in numerous major publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, Mashable, and on NPR.


ABOUT THE WILLIAM H. GILE TRUST CONCERT SERIES

The William H. Gile Trust was created by Helen B. Gile in 1952.  She left a legacy of more than $700,000 to finance a free concert series in Concord, New Hampshire in memory of her father, William H. Gile.  Helen Gile stipulated that the trust funds were to be managed by what is now Citizens Bank, and that the selection of shows “of the highest type in all respects” was to be made by a committee of three local citizens.

After much planning, the first William H. Gile Concert Series was held during the 1960-61 show season, and, over 55 years later, we are happy to now call the Capitol Center for the Arts our home.

The Selection Committee strives to present a diverse offering of performance types, to include some shows that are suitable for children, and to expose the community to performances that they might otherwise not have a chance to see.  Please let us know if you have any ideas for future shows.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible gift to help the William H. Gile Trust continue to provide free concerts for years to come, please contact Mark Prian in the Citizen’s Bank Trust Department at 603-634-7742.
