ORLANDO PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA CELEBRATES
50TH ANNIVERSARY OF WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL
Philharmonic to pay tribute to iconic performances of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and more
(Wednesday, August 28, Orlando, FL) – The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra kicks off its 2019-2020 Pops Series with two performances of Woodstock 50th Anniversary featuring Jeans ‘n Classics on Saturday, October 5 at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m. at Bob Carr Theater.
The program, the first of five in the Pops Series, will be led by Music Director Eric Jacobsen and will celebrate the iconic festival phenomenon with music by Janis Joplin, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jefferson Airplane, and others. The Philharmonic is excited to be welcoming Jeans ‘n Classics back to Orlando. A staple guest artist of the annual concert at “The Springs” in Longwood, FL, Jeans ‘n Classics is a Philharmonic favorite, bringing to life the music of ABBA, Sting & The Police, and Marvin Gaye in recent years.
Concertgoers are encouraged to dress in their favorite Woodstock garb – jeans, t-shirts, and full fringe. Were you one of the lucky people present for the original 1969 Woodstock festival? The Orlando Philharmonic invites you to share your favorite memories and photos with them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra is funded in part by United Arts of Central Florida, host of OrlandoAtPlay.com and UAArtsEd.com, and the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
