Known for his smooth blues-rock sound, two-time Grammy Award-winning artist Kenny Loggins has 12 platinum albums under his belt. He first rose to fame as part of the duo Loggins and Messina before embarking on a meteoric solo career during which he penned and recorded such enduring hits as "Footloose," "Danger Zone," "Celebrate Me Home," I'm Alright" and the Grammy-winning "This Is It." Now in his fourth decade of performing, he's still going strong. His latest album, a Disney collaboration titled All Join In, includes songs for the whole family. It is, as Loggins puts it, "a tasty musical gumbo, full of a lot of colors and flavors." Loggins is also writing yet another chapter in his storied career by teaming with two all-star country musicians to form the trio Blue Sky Riders. Country Music Hall of Famer Gary Burr has written hits for everyone from Conway Twitty to Christina Aguilera, while singer-songwriter Georgia Middleman's songs have been recorded by some of country music's top artists, including Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Martina McBride. Blue Sky Riders released their debut album last year and have already appeared on The Tonight Show and at the prestigious SXSW music fest in Austin. Learn More
The theme of the Wind Symphony’s season is “America the Beautiful.” Each concert explores a different aspect of America’s rich musical heritage. The Beat Goes On takes concertgoers on a rhythmic journey through the American musical landscape, from the gospel-inspired American Hymnsong Suite by Dawyne Milburn to the Civil War battlefields of Morton Gould’s American Salute.
Our guest artist for the afternoon is Galen Lemmon, principal percussionist with Symphony Silicon Valley. Mr. Lemmon will perform Gary Ziek’s Concerto for Percussion Solo and Wind Ensemble, showcasing his formidable talents on marimba, vibraphone, bells and a battery of drums and tom-toms.*
