OCMD Presents From Classical to Rock Benefit!
From Classical to Rock (FC2R) was founded by the famous Chinese violinist Yutong (Pacific Symphony, LA Phil, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra), Rock musician Marten Andersson (Steelheart, Lizzy Borden, Lynch Mob) and acclaimed cellist Stan Sharp (Long Beach Symphony, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra) to help benefit music education. This year FC2R has joined forces with the Orange County Music & Dance, the area’s first and only community performing arts school to present a star-studded evening benefiting music education for Orange County communities.
Hosted by Randy Jackson and headlined by Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls, with very special guest Nancy Wilson (Heart, Roadcase Royale). The concert features original music scored by Nathan Wang, one of the biggest Hollywood composers and more than 20 high profile musicians from classical music to Rock and Roll including Nancy Wilson (Heart). It’s a magical performance of musical poetry, where platinum-selling rock musicians meet acclaimed classical music musicians and classically trained music students.
