RSO’s New Years Eve concert will feature “Music of Queen” [Spotlight] – Reading eagle


The Reading Symphony Orchestra will partner with Windborne Productions to present “The Music of Queen” on New Years Eve at 7:30 am at the Santander Performing Arts Center, 136 N. Sixth St.

Performing with the Reading Symphony Orchestra, guest conductor Brent Havens, vocalist MiG Ayesa and the band stay true to Queen’s music while “wrapping” the symphony orchestra around the original sound.

“New Years Eve is going to be an incredible sight,” said David Gross, executive director of the Reading Symphony Orchestra. “You’re looking for a lot of vocals, a lot of harmonic structure and a perfect group to be accompanied by the Reading Symphony Orchestra. We plan to switch in 2022.

The energetic performance will provide the familiarity of Queen songs you know and love, making the show fun to play and watch.

Australian rocker and West End veteran MiG Ayesa comfortably handles the complex and difficult task of portraying the voice of Freddie Mercury.

Music from the albums “Classic Queen”, “A Night At The Opera”, “Sheer Heart Attack”, “Jazz, News of the World”, “A Kind of Magic”, “The Works” and many more are all featured in this show.

“Merging a rock band with a symphony orchestra is something that you have to see,” Gross said. “The band will stay as close to the original songs as possible, as the orchestra soars through the tunes and adds that extra something to make the show really special.”
