Music of Led Zeppelin By The Lubbock Symphony Orchestra This Week
Wednesday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, Conductor David Cho and President and CEO of the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra Galen Wixson joined Dave and Matt to talk about the Symphony's upcoming Led Zeppelin show, as well as their free Halloween concert.
Coming up this Friday night, on October 18th at 7:30 PM at the Civic Center, the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra will be having their Music of Led Zeppelin concert. The event will have a cover band that will play some of Zeppelin's biggest hits, and behind them will be the orchestra adding a new layer to the music. Galen Wixson had this to say,
It really adds a dimension that you don't expect. It's still hard rock and roll, and it's still all the guitars, and screaming vocals and all of that, but you have the seniority of the orchestra behind it. It really makes it an incredible experience. And then you have the lights. It's just a rock concert. That's what we're looking forward to.
