Classical Music and Classic Rock Collide at the Smith Center

Ready for some classic rock with a classical twist? I’ve got the show for you. The Smith Center for Performing Arts is hosting the return of the Symphonic Rock Show. The previous show was at the Henderson Pavilion in 2010 when vocalist Brody Dolynuik played his last show with local classic rock band, Yellow Brick Road. This month Dolynuik will reunite as the vocalist for the band and they will team up with a 21 piece orchestra to deliver a classic rock masterpiece.

If you have never heard rock with an orchestra before be prepared to be blown away as the sound will be state of the art. The exciting full sound you get to experience when listening to classical music will be merged with music from legendary bands. Led Zepplin, the Beatles, Aerosmith, Queen, Pink Floyd and others will be performed in their entirety along with lasers and specials effects bringing you a memorable performance.

The show will be held at the gorgeous Smith Center For Performing Arts, Reynolds Hall on Friday August 24, at 8:00pm. Tickets range from $24 to $79, with the higher priced tickets giving you access to an after party with live music and a meet & greet with Brody Dolyniuk (who also happens to be the producer) , Yellow Brick Road and some orchestra members.
