FARGO-MOORHEAD SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Caribbean steel drum band FUEGO TROPICAL
THURSDAY, AUGUST 14, 2014
5:30 Pre-concert CARIBBEAN BBQ at Bluestem Marcil Commons: Scheels Living Room & Gallery Space
8:00 Concert on Bluestem Amphitheatre Stage
The symphony will again join forces with the 12-piece Post-Traumatic Funk Syndrome for the fourth annual SYMPHONY ROCKS @ BLUESTEM concert and fundraising event at Bluestem Center for the Arts. This year, we are also adding the Caribbean steel drum band FUEGO TROPICAL to the lineup. Both groups will perform together with the symphony and also will perform a tune or two on their own. We will also be featuring vocals by Fargo's very own Deb Jenkins and American Idol contestant Andrina Brogden.
Conducted by Jane Linde Capistran and featuring more new arrangements by Russ Peterson, the concert will include orchestral showpieces that have a Latin flair, as well as hits from Santana, Gloria Estefan, Bob Marley, Coldplay, and many more.
