Sold Out But Still Guaranteed to Blow Your Mind
Erie Philharmonic Plays the Music of Queen
Saturday, May 18
There are tribute bands and then there are celebrations, and the Erie Philharmonic aims for the latter with its sold out performance, "One Vision: The Music of Queen." It will be a kind of magic to bear witness to this sonic exploration of the legendary Queen, who have been cleverly and fortunately introduced to a new generation with the recent Oscar-winning film, Bohemian Rhapsody.
Since you've heard Queen songs on your radio — or Spotify playlist — you are likely to be fully prepared to not merely become background noise to the orchestra and choir's performance, which will include classics like "Under Pressure," "I Want it All," "Killer Queen," and "Somebody to Love." Yet remember to be extraordinarily nice and don't sing too loud — this performance is for one night only and no one wants to miss a moment of this journey through Queen's sound.
Additionally, in keeping with enhancing the future for the dreams of youth, the Philharmonic are hosting an elementary school supply drive for local students entering Lincoln Elementary School in September. Bring your favorite — or most often used — elementary school accoutrement to the concert, or drop it by the office before May 22. Those who donate will be entered to win a Flex 4 pass for the 2019-20 Philharmonic season.
Go ahead, on May 18 have yourself a real good time, feel alive, and float around in ecstasy by attending this one-of-a-kind musical event at the Warner Theater. It's guaranteed to blow your mind. — Miriam Lamey
