Classical Blast Back For The Holidays!
Members of Chicago's most talked about holiday musical presentation -- CLASSICAL BLAST -- will guest live from 7-8pm on 89.1-FM Lakeshore Public Radio's weekly "Midwest BEAT" radio program. Selections will be played from the group's now holiday classic album, "Dark Side Of the Yule".
Classical Blast’s Dark Side of the Yule holiday concert is a most unique Christmas musical experience which provides a new take on traditional carols, by mashing with rock music from the '60s to current, all performed on a mix of classical and rock instruments and featuring special guests.
The live "Dark Side of the Yule" performances includes music by Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Moody Blues, Metallica, Evanescence, and others, mashed up with Christmas classics, medieval carols, and original Classical Blast holiday songs.
This year’s show features some new group members and some special guests added to the mix, along with new original music selections and creative new mash-ups, performed with the same outstanding musicianship expected from the critically acclaimed hybrid ensemble known as Classical Blast.
