The Music of Queen & The Music of Led Zeppelin

It is becoming increasingly common, thankfully, for popular music to be considered alongside its ostensibly more-refined predecessor in classical music. Really, classical music was the popular music of its heyday, before musical technology and new ways of thinking about composition allowed for music to explode out into the multitude of sub-categories that we are so familiar with today. This weekend, in a best-of-both-worlds kind of scenario, The San Antonio Symphony, accompanied by a full rock band and led by arranger/conductor Brent Havens, presents the music of Queen and Led Zeppelin in two shows that are not to be missed. As two classic rock bands with massive sounds and stage shows, it’s hard to imagine bands better suited to the classical treatment. Whether you’re a rock fan with classical curiosities or a classical music fan with a bit of a wild streak, these two shows, reimagining some of the finest and most beloved songs in recent music history, provide unique crossover opportunities.
