Valhalla, I am coming! “Rockin’ Orchestra” series wields Hammer of the Gods with legendary hard rock sound April 2


DAYTON, OH (March 18) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra continues its new “Rockin’ Orchestra” series with The Symphony Rocks: The Music of Led Zeppelin, featuring hard rock ensemble Windborne, on Saturday, April 2, 2011 at 8 p.m. in the Schuster Center.  Patrick Reynolds, Assistant Conductor of the DPO, will conduct.

The highly varied music of legendary hard rock and proto-metal rockers Led Zeppelin is a perfect match for the orchestral setting, especially when presented by the incredible musicians and arrangers of Windborne. Since 1995, this group has been dedicated to bringing classic rock to the concert hall and The Music of Led Zeppelin was their first big hit. Unlike arena shows, you’ll hear every note and nuance of great songs such as All of My Love, Black Dog, Good Times Bad Times, Kashmir, and of course, Stairway to Heaven.

Tickets for The Symphony Rocks: The Music of Led Zeppelin range from $22 - $76 and are available by calling (888) 228-3630 or by ordering on the web at

 The 2010-2011 Rockin’ Orchestra series sponsor is Forge.  


About Windborne
Windborne Productions, Inc. has been in existence since 1990, doing work for both television and movies. Music is a large part of the work of their media division, and the founder of Windborne, Brent Havens, has been writing music for television, theatrical movies, music libraries and industrial productions since 1980. Their first live production of classic rock music with orchestra was in late 1995 — The Music of Led Zeppelin. After the initial response from that show they realized that this was something that had the potential to spread throughout the country. That is exactly what happened and 5 different classic rock shows later, Windborne personnel have traveled the country and into Canada touring The Music of Led Zeppelin, The Music of Pink Floyd, The Music of the Eagles, The Music of The Doors and The Music of Queen with orchestras great and small. They look to the future to keep Windborne on the cutting edge of live and recorded music production.
