The Richland Rock Orchestra enters its Seventh Season as a cutting edge ensemble combining the new with the old. The ensemble features modern rock and electronic instruments alongside traditional string instruments. The group enjoys tackling any style of music from any era. Previous performances have been renditions of its Bittersweet Symphony show in which the group has covered over 100 rock, pop, blues, and indie hit songs. Last year, the band performed over 20 hit Queen numbers in the musical We Will Rock You.
This year's performance is a celebration of human history. It will be a video journey through Moments in Time as our Rock Orchestra, Singers, and Dancers perform the music associated with these moments. The music performed at this event will reflect these various time periods, featuring a little something for everyone, and keep you on the edge of your seats!
The Richland Orchestra has previously performed with Pittsburgh-based rock band, The Clarks, on three occasions, Jim Donovan and the Sun King Warriors, Sultans of String, Cello Fury, and Mates of State.
