The Houston Symphony this weekend (July 5 & 6, 2019) gets into full excitement presenting the rock/pop music of the 80's iconic group Queen.
Estimates of Queen's record sales range from 170 million to 300 million records, making them one of the world's best-selling music artists. We will, we will rock you! Amped up with a vocalist Brody Dolyniuk and a full rock band, the Houston Symphony pays tribute to Freddie Mercury and Queen with unforgettable hits like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Are the Champions” and “Somebody to Love.”
Brody Dolyniuk is a gifted, self-taught musician, capable of playing several instruments, with a particular knack for capturing the voices and mannerisms of classic characters from music, TV, and movies.
His first professional gigs were at piano bars in several US cities, where he learned to charm audiences and expand his musical repertoire. With a longing to perform the music of the many rock bands that inspired him, Brody assembled Yellow Brick Road (YBR), unquestionably Las Vegas’ most successful classic rock band. Since 1997, YBR has been reshaping the casino entertainment scene by bringing a rock concert atmosphere to showrooms previously reserved for Top-40-style lounge acts. Along the way, Brody has made numerous radio and TV appearances and earned a spot in the finals of two national singing competitions. He has also self-produced several large rock production-style shows utilizing multimedia, lasers, comedy, and special effects. In 2007, Brody lent his vocal talents to several tracks on the mega-hit video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and has also provided vocals for the Konami game Rock Revolution.
Brody joined Windborne Music in 2009 as vocalist for The Music of Queen and has proven versatile enough to lead Windbourne’s Rolling Stones, The Who, U2, Journey, and Elton John shows. He also serves as an on-call stand-in for several other shows, including The Music of Led Zeppelin and The Music of Pink Floyd. As a devout classic rock fan, Brody’s enthusiasm, vocal ability and on-stage energy are a perfect fit for Windborne Music’s Symphony shows and continue to win over audiences around the globe.
Berklee-trained arranger/conductor Brent Havens has written music for orchestras, feature films and virtually every kind of television. His TV work includes movies for networks such as ABC, CBS and ABC Family Channel Network, commercials, sports music for networks such as ESPN and even cartoons. Havens has also worked with the Doobie Brothers and the Milwaukee Symphony, arranging and conducting the combined group for Harley Davidson’s 100th Anniversary Birthday Party Finale attended by over 150,000 fans. He has worked with some of the world’s greatest orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic and the BBC Concert Orchestra in London, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Malaysian Philharmonic, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, the Dallas Symphony, the Fort Worth Symphony, the Nashville Symphony, the Buffalo Philharmonic, and countless others.
Havens recently completed the score for the film “Quo Vadis,” a Premier Pictures remake of the 1956 gladiator film.
In 2013 he worked with the Baltimore Symphony and the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens to arrange and produce the music for the Thanksgiving Day halftime show between the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, adapting both classical music and rock songs into a single four-minute show. Havens is Arranger/Guest Conductor for all the symphonic rock programs for Windborne Music.
