The Music of Queen
Windborne’s hottest Classic Rock Symphony show is The Music of Queen. The show has quickly garnered critical and fan acclaim. Who isn’t familiar with the classic tunes of Queen? It’s difficult to go out these days and not hear something from their catalog on the radio, at the ballpark, on TV or at the grocery store. Knowing that, we wanted to stay as true to what Queen intended for our own production. Once again, the band stays as close as possible to the original recordings and the orchestra is “wrapped” around that original sound. Lots of vocals, lots of harmonic structure and a perfect group to be accompanied by an orchestra. High energy, fun music, and the familiarity of the songs make the show a fun one both to play and to see. MiG Ayesa, born in the Philippines and raised in Australia with professional stops in London and on Broadway, handles the complex and difficult task of representing Freddie Mercury’s vocals on the show. MiG’s amazing energy and incredible voice grips the audience and involves them in the performance. If you’re an average fan or someone who knows literally every song ever recorded by Queen, there’s something for you in this show. We dig deep to bring out some of the best (and sometimes forgotten) tunes that Queen and Freddie recorded over the years.
|Music from the albums Classic Queen, A Night at the Opera, Sheer Heart Attack, Jazz, News of the World, A Kind of Magic, The Works and many more are all featured in this show. As with all of Windborne’s shows, the band stays as close to the original as possible while the orchestra soars through the tunes and adds that extra “something” that make Windborne’s shows special.|
