Hear Led Zeppelin's majestic riffage in a whole new light as Symphony Silicon Valley backs a full rock band for renditions of 18 of the band's greatest hits. Shrieks and all, vocalist Randy Jackson -- lead singer of the rock band Zebra - takes the Robert Plant role, belting out epic tracks such as "Immigrant Song," "Heartbreaker" and of course "Stairway to Heaven" as the Symphony's lush string arrangements fill in to take them to a whole new level. With its intricate rhythms and unusual progressions, few bands are better suited for this kind of hybrid than Led Zeppelin, offering an exciting opportunity to bridge the gulf between the realms of rock 'n' roll and classical music.

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.*
