The 23-24 Dayton Freight Rockin’ Orchestra Series
WE WILL ROCK YOU!
DAYTON, OH (Sept. 27, 2023) – The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance presents Jeans ‘n Classics: Music of Queen with the Dayton Philharmonic and world-class rock musicians as they pay homage to the legacy of Queen and front-man Freddie Mercury. Audiences will hear songs such as “We Are the Champions,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and “Flash.” Jeans ‘n Classics: Music of Queen joins the Dayton Philharmonic and the Dayton Philharmonic Chorus on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 7:30pm at the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets for Jeans ‘n Classics: Music of Queen are on sale now. Call 937-228-3630, purchase online at daytonperformingarts.org/tickets, or stop by the Schuster Center Box Office in downtown Dayton.
“I’m looking forward to this concert,” said Neal Gittleman, Dayton Philharmonic Artistic Director and Conductor. “Queen could rock out with the best of them, but a lot of their songs had a uniquely symphonic sound and a musical complexity that made me sit up and pay attention. My good friends from Jeans ’n Classics, the DPO, and the Dayton Philharmonic Chorus will be performing one Queen hit after another. We will definitely rock you!”
Audiences should be prepared to relive the 70s and 80s with songs such as “I Want to Break Free,” Flash,” Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and, of course, the famous “We Are the Champions.” Accompanied by the Dayton Philharmonic, the Dayton Philharmonic Chorus, and rock musicians and vocalists, Music of Queen promises a night of nostalgia, great music, and fun.
