Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata: Songs from "The Sound Of Music"
Show DescriptionBRO is the highly anticipated new project from Peter Kiesewalter, leader and musical mind behind GRAMMY nominated Opera revisionists East Village Opera Company.
BRO’s debut album (to be released early 2011) and live show is entitled “The Hills Are Alive,” a genre-bending adaptation of the songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s iconic musical “The Sound Of Music.” Initially conceived as a one-time only concert, “The Hills Are Alive” caught the attention of the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization who granted BRO unprecedented artistic license with the songs. So impressed was the RHO that they invited the group to participate in the filmed bonus segments on the upcoming blu-ray DVD re-release of the 1965 OSCAR winning movie “The Sound Of Music,” to be released November 2, 2010.
The live show runs approximately 75-80 minutes (without intermission) and features BRO’s dynamic versions of 14 songs from “The Sound Of Music.” A minimum of seven onstage performers blend rock, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, and country into a high octane musical mix that will thrill audiences of all ages – “Sound Of Music” purists and skeptics alike.
