Formed by Doug "Cosmo" Clifford and Stu Cook, two of the founding members of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Creedence Clearwater Revisited plays classic hits such as "Fortunate Son," "Bad Moon Rising," "Proud Mary," "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" and many more. The two are joined by lead singer/rhythm guitar player John Tristao (formerly of the band People), lead guitarist Kurt Griffey (who's toured with members of the Eagles, Foreigner and more) and multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner. What started as a plan to perform at private parties has turned into almost 20 years of touring to enthusiastic crowds. The band even released an album, "Recollection," in 2008 featuring their version of CCR songs. Fans of CCR and classic rock will love hearing the band's hits live with the same energy they had back in the day. Joining Creedence Clearwater Revisited is Robert Randolph & The Family Band, who have an upbeat, soul/funk/gospel sound. Randolph was also named one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone. Learn More

Mussorgsky / Rimsky-Korsakov: _A Night on Bald Mountain _
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 2
Rimsky-Korsakov: _Scheherazade _
Expect drama, color, and big, big thrills from three iconic Russian composers and their signature works. Night on Bald Mountain entered the American consciousness in the 1940s courtesy of Fantasia_. Its pulsating rhythms and exotic imagery continue to fire imaginations today. Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto inspires awe for the remarkable solo turn, delivered here by the electrifying pianist Valentina Lisitsa. But there is no piece more vivid and evocative than Scheherazade_ — its achingly sweet violin solo and sweeping melodies transport listeners to another time and place.
