Bridging the gulf between rock n' roll and classical music, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performs The Music of Led Zeppelin on October 18. Amplified by a full rock band and accompanied by singer Randy Jackson’s screaming vocals, creator Brent Havens guest conducts the ensemble as they capture Led Zeppelin's "sheer blast and power," riff for riff while churning out new musical colors. Expect hits from Led Zeppelin's extensive music catalog such as "Ramble On," "Kashmir," "Black Dog," "Going to California" plus a few surprises. Tickets start at $25 per person!
"My concept for The Music of Led Zeppelin was to take the music as close to the originals as we could and then add some colors to enhance what Zep had done," says Havens. "The wonderful thing with an orchestra is that you have an entire palette to call upon. The band is reproducing what Led Zeppelin did on the albums, verbatim, and then having an orchestra behind the band gives the music a richness, a whole different feel, a whole different sense of power."
