‘Rocktopia’ to Bring Fusion of Classical and Rock Music to Broadway

Broadway will soon be host to the collision of classical music and iconic rock songs when “Rocktopia” arrives in spring 2018.

“Rocktopia” is a concert that celebrates the fusion of rock songs from the past century with classical music, including works by Mozart, Journey, Handel, U2, Tchaikovsky, Heart, Beethoven, Journey, Foreigner, Rachmaninoff, Queen, Aaron Copland, The Who and more. Created by vocalist and recording artist Rob Evan and Maestro Randall Craig Fleischer, a pioneer in the fusion of symphonic rock and world music, the concert features vocalists, a five-piece rock band, a choir of 40 and an orchestra of 20.

Featured singers include Rob Evan, Chloe Lowery , Tony Vincent, Kimberly Nichole, Alyson Cambridge, accompanied by musicians such as violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, guitarist Tony Bruno, pianist Henry Aronson, bass player Mat Fieldes and drummer Alex Alexander

“We love both classical music and classic rock. There are so many parallels between the genres and between the ‘rock stars’ who composed and performed them,” says Evan. “With ‘Rocktopia,’ we want to break down barriers and any preconceived notion of what either genre is about – and electrify and inspire lovers of either musical style with these completely original new pieces.”

“Rocktopia” will play the Broadway Theater from March 20-April 29, 2018, moving into the venue soon after the current revival of “Miss Saigon” exits the theater for a national tour.
