Bridging the gap between rock ‘n’ roll and classical music, conductor and arranger Brent Havens will return to the podium with the acclaimed Detroit Symphony Orchestra to present The Music of Queen at Meadow Brook Amphitheatre on the campus of Oakland University on Sunday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. The orchestra’s performance will also be joined by a full rock band and vocals to showcase Queen’s distinct sound while presenting familiar and new musical colors.
“When I sat down to begin scoring the show, it was amazing how comfortably the orchestra fit within the structure of the music. Innovative chord progressions, wonderful melodies and the astounding vocals of Freddie Mercury make the music a perfect choice to orchestrate. And having world class musicians in every city we present the show makes the music even that much more compelling.”
