Dubuque Symphony Orchestra Rocks Out on Jan 19-20
The Dubuque Symphony Orchestra Ultimate Rock Hits Concert continues this year, once again hosting a Friday night and Saturday night performance.
The concerts will be 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 19 and Saturday, Jan. 20, 2017. Runde Auto Group is proud to be the exclusive sponsor of this unique event!
“This year’s music has great strength and power behind it,” said Joie Booth, show co-founder, coordinator, and vocalist.
“Music that makes you drive your car a little bit over the speed limit or forces you to run a little farther. Music that lights you on fire and inspires you to reach the next level!”
The Dubuque Symphony Orchestra will present a symphonic rock experience that you won’t see anywhere else. Those who are used to the symphony playing the likes of Beethoven, Berlioz, and Bruckner will definitely get a taste of something that differs quite a bit from the norm. We’re not saying Beethoven didn’t produce some head-banging symphonies, because he absolutely did — he just didn’t use drums in the same manner as they do in rock and roll.
“We are always excited to bring in new singers, expanding our reach into the wide range of talented rockers in this region, and bringing in their devoted fans as well,” said William Intriligator, Music Director and Conductor of the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra. “Emily Webb from Few Blind Mice and Katie Keoperlich from Boogie Monster join us this year and we also welcome back Joie Booth, Adam Beck and Lexi Parr.”
The concerts will feature chart-topping hits from the 1970s to the present, and include legendary songs that are instantly recognizable.
“I’m really excited about the mix of songs,” William said. “We have a wide range of styles and time periods represented. Many favorites by bands like Volbeat, Alice In Chains, Kings of Leon, the Doors, Bruno Mars and the late great Tom Petty. We have some exciting orchestra features planned, as well!”
