On February 9, we’ll see you on the Dark Side of the Moon

DAYTON, OH (January 25, 2012) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will continue its 2011-2012 “Rockin’ Orchestra” series with The Music of Pink Floyd featuring rock ensemble Windborne on Thursday, February 9, 2012 at 8 p.m. in the Schuster Center.  

Legendary British rockers Pink Floyd truly explored the outer edge, combining trippy rock with a psychological slant and couching it in a new conceptual richness. Their monster hit album Dark Side of the Moon appealed to the sensitivities of the era while delving into deeper recesses of the mind. Released in March 1973, Dark Side of the Moon remained on Billboard Charts for the next 15 years, setting the all-time record with 741 total weeks on the charts.  Rock ensemble Windborne will bring the full glory of Floyd’s sound to the Mead Theatre stage, deftly melding rock with orchestra in a setting of mesmerizing visual effects.

Tickets for The Music of Pink Floyd range from $42 - $84 and are available by calling (888) 228-3630 or by ordering on the web at  Senior tickets are $2 off regular prices, areas B-E; student tickets are 50% off regular prices, areas B-E.

Supporting sponsor for The Music of Pink Floyd is Sandler Training/The Roger Wentworth Group.  The Rockin’ Orchestra series media sponsor is WTUE 104.7.  

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.
