Bugs Bunny at the Symphony will be celebrated when the Las Vegas Philharmonic performs the classic Looney Tunes nostalgia at Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center on Jan. 7.

Emmy Award winner George Daugherty will be conducting, and along with his husband, Emmy Award winner David Ka Lik Wong, both created the program. Bugs Bunny at the Symphony, performed by major orchestras, has been touring the world since 1990. After living in Los Angeles and San Francisco, George and David now call Las Vegas home.

Looney Tunes, the animated series produced by Warner Bros., started in 1930 with its partner series, Merrie Melodies, through 1969. The two series introduced Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, Speedy Gonzales, Sylvester the Cat, the Tasmanian Devil (Taz), Tweety, Wile E. Coyote, the Road Runner, Foghorn Leghorn, Granny, Lola Bunny, Marvin the Martian, Pepé Le Pew, and Yosemite Sam.
