Led by guest conductor Michael Runyan and accompanied by Tony Vincent and the Windborne Music band, the RPO presents We Will Rock You – The Music of Queen Saturday, April 27th, at the Kodak Center. The show will feature Queen’s greatest and best-known hits, including “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody to Love,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and more! According to the visiting vocalist, the artists stay “as close as possible to the original recordings, and the orchestra is ‘wrapped’ around that original sound.” Tickets are available online via the RPO.
