Inspired by the outpouring of support by The Who themselves and the thousands of fans around the world who came out to celebrate The HillBenders' 2015 release Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry, The Hillbenders have recently announced a follow up project called "WhoGrass," a¬†chronological journey of The Who‚Äôs legendary catalog through the wood and wire of bluegrass instrumentation. Framed as a follow-up to The HillBenders 2015 acoustic interpretation of The Who‚Äôs TOMMY, WhoGrass now gives the audience a career spanning twist on one of rock ‚Äôn‚Äô roll‚Äôs greatest bands. From the early hits all the way through The Who‚Äôs discography and even a peek into Pete Townshend‚Äôs solo career, the rolling banjo, intense dobro percussion, and thunderous vocals have even the biggest Who fan pumping their fist and singing along! ‚ÄúThe HillBenders prove to be the perfect group to execute this WhoGrass concept.‚ÄĚ -Rolling Stone

Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3

Soulful, soaring, and electrifying, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 makes a striking dramatic statement. The drama is echoed in Strauss’ Suite from Der Rosenkavalier, which tells the tale of a love triangle with humor and wisdom; and Lera Auerbach’s Icarus, a symphonic poem based on the tragic Greek myth of a winged boy with abundant ambition.

Dvorak's Requiem

Anton√≠n DvoŇô√°k‚Äôs monumental Requiem setting soars in the similar grand Romantic style of the settings of Verdi and Berlioz. DvoŇô√°k brings to this work a strong sense of dramatic pacing, inventive orchestration, and his own deep religious devotion. From the fire and fury of the ‚ÄúDies Irae‚ÄĚ to the tender pleas of the soloist‚Äôs ‚ÄúPie Jesu‚ÄĚ, this performance will captivate, inspire, and engage.
