The MN Orchestra presents the Music of Led Zepplin and Queen at the US Bank Theater at the Target Center

Think that classic music is boring and going to the MN Orchestra is lame? WRONG. The Minnesota Orchestra is putting on a show at the US Bank Theater at the Target Center on Febuary 4th that will feature the music of rock legends Led Zepplin and Queen.

Our concept for The Music of Led Zeppelin was to take the music as close to the originals as we could and then add some colors to enhance what Zep had done,” says Brent Havens conductor and arranger. “The wonderful thing with an orchestra is that you have an entire palette of sounds to call upon. The band is reproducing what Led Zeppelin did on the albums, verbatim, and then having an orchestra behind the band gives the music richness, a whole different feel, a whole different sense of power.”

While no one could ever reproduce the music of Led Zeppelin and Queen perfectly, the Minnesota Orchestra presentation of these two rock legends is very close. Don't miss your chance to see how classical music is really not that much different than rock.

I love Queen! I wonder how Bohemian Rhapsody will turn out with the Orchestra?

B, I have never been to the show, but my friend went last year or the year before and said it was really cool.
