Charenton, LA (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
In a new collaboration that will bring an interesting and entertaining night of music to South Louisiana, the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel are joining to together to present The Music of Led Zeppelin: A Rock Symphony in the Pavilion at Cypress Bayou on December 27, 2014. Amplified by a full rock band and accompanied by Zebra lead singer, Randy Jackson, creator Brent Havens will guest conduct the ASO as they capture Led Zeppelin’s “sheer blast and power,” riff for riff while churning out new musical colors.
“My 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,” said Havens. “The wonderful thing with an orchestra is that you have an entire palette 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 a richness, a whole different feel, a whole different sense of power.”
“We are known for bringing in some of the biggest names in classic rock, so to feature the music of the iconic Led Zeppelin in a new and different format is an exciting adventure for us. I think our guests are going to really enjoy the experience. This also marks our first joint presentation with the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra, allowing us to diversify the entertainment we offer,” said Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel CEO and General Manger, Anthony Patrone.
“We are always looking for new and creative ways to expose broader audiences to the creative work of the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra. Partnering with Cypress BayouCasino Hotel to present this show is a great fit and will allow us to bring the incredible talents of our musicians to a whole new audience,” added Jenny Paulson-Krueger, Executive Director of the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra.
The 2-plus hour concert features 18 Zeppelin tunes, including Stairway to Heaven, Heartbreaker, Black Dog and Immigrant Song.
Doors for the December 27 show open at 7:00p.m. Showtime is at 8:00p.m. Tickets for the concert are now on sale at ticketmaster.com or at Bizzute Gifts inside Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel.
