Classic Rock Cover Albums Concert
Teaming up with the talented youth in the Orange County School of the Arts' Commercial Music Conservatory, the South Coast Symphony lends its unflagging skill to a program of classic-rock staples. Throughout the evening, innovative covers that honor artists spanning from Journey to Foreigner to Joan Jett benefit from an atmospheric infusion of orchestral melody, the inspired vigor of youthful performers, and the decisive editing of lengthy mouth-harp solos.
South Coast Symphony
The South Coast Symphony bills itself as "the unstuffy symphony." Which isn't to say that its pro musicians have any disrespect for the classical tradition—any given season likely will be rich with mammoth orchestral works and famous operas. But the group has broad tastes, and accordingly partners with a wide range of musicians to put on evenings of Broadway show tunes, renditions of classic-rock albums, and film-score performances. Many of the concerts are designed to be welcoming to a wide audience, including kids or adults who have never listened to anything besides CDs of funny sound effects.
