RSO Classics: Dreams of the Fallen featuring Jeffrey Biegel and the Mendelssohn Chorale Date: Saturday November 08, 2014
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

Rockford native Jake Runestad calls his Dreams of the Fallen “A Musical Response to War”, which seeks to express life through the eyes of a soldier, both during combat and after returning home. The RSO has co-commissioned this powerful work, featuring pianist Jeffrey Biegel and the Mendelssohn Chorale. Barber’s Adagio for Strings, written in 1936 and a familiar icon of mourning and cathartic pathos, opens the program. Dvořák’s Fifth Symphony offers a bucolic and cheerful antipode, displaying the young Czech composer’s emerging confidence in his talent.

Rock_1415_Header.jpg

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses... think again. STRAIGHT NO CHASER are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases. The HAPPY HOUR TOUR comes on the heels of the release of Under The Influence, their fourth album release through Atlantic Records. The album features contributions from superstars Jason Mraz, Rob Thomas, Phil Collins, Dolly Parton and more! STRAIGHT NO CHASER is the real deal, the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense... and with a sense of humor. On the road, STRAIGHT NO CHASER has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act. 

 

In This Moment ::

In This Moment Date: Friday November 14, 2014
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

In This Moment, an American alternative metal band, will perform live at the Coronado PerformingArtsCenter on Friday, November 14th at 7 p.m.  Special guests 12 Foot Ninja, Starset and 3 Pill Morning will also be performing. Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 19th at 11 a.m. and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000 or through the Coronado Theatre Box Office by calling 815-968-5222. Tickets are $25 in advance or $27 at the door plus applicable fees.

Led by frontwoman Maria Brink, the Los Angeles hard rock outfit strikes with a seductive metallic bite on their aptly titled fifth full-length album, Black Widow. The record, the first for the band on Atlantic Records, picks up where the group's 2012 breakthrough, Blood, left off. That album saw In This Moment debut at #15 on the Billboard Top 200, their highest chart position to date, and eventually sold over 250,000 units in the U.S. alone. It also spawned the single "Blood," which rose to #9 on the Mainstream Rock and Active Rock Songs charts. A sold out headline tour, HELLPOP, followed, as well as appearances at the Uproar Festival and Rock On The Range, and jaunts with Shinedown and Papa Roach. After the whirlwind of Blood subsided, Maria and Chris retreated to Las Vegas in February 2014 to begin working on what would become Black Widow with longtime producer Kevin Churko [Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch].

The performance is sponsored by 104.9 The X and Frank Productions

Rock_1415_Header.jpg

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy - considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy - soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evildoers of Times Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating craps game.
