When I was in high school, I found a cassette tape of Queen’s greatest hits laying around my house. I popped it into the cassette player of my Chevy Citation (don’t be jealous), and my love affair with Queen began.
As a singer myself, Freddie Mercury’s vocals blew my mind. Then you add in the sheer genius of the band’s song arrangements and musical abilities and the whole sound becomes pure magic.
When I got the opportunity to exchange a blog post for 2 tickets to The San Antonio Symphony Performs The Music Of Queen, I jumped at it! The best part, is that I get to take my 16 year-old who is also a Queen fan! Proof that their music can stand the test of time, making fans with each new generation.
Freddie Mercury is sadly no longer with us, but Vocalist and performer Brody Dolyniuk, will provide Freddie Mercury-like sound to the show. He’s also known for providing vocals for the video games “Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock,” and “Rock Revolution”
Bridging the gap between rock n’ roll and classical music, conductor/arranger Brent Havens takes the podium on October 23, 2015 at 8 p.m., as he channels the music of Freddy Mercury and Queen into a symphonic experience unlike any other. According to Havens, “The band is reproducing what Queen did live, as closely as possible within the constraints of personnel, and then having an orchestra behind the band gives the music richness, a whole new feel, a whole different sense of color but still preserving the wonderful music that they originally produced.” Familiar songs will entice rock fans to the Symphony for a new appreciation of Queen’s arrangements and Mercury’s vocal style.
This awesome event will be held On October 23, 2015 at 8:00 P.M. in the beautiful and historical Majestic Theater of San Antonio!
