If you're in the LA area and want to experience a completely unique music show for a great cause, mark Saturday April 28 on your calendars for “From Classical To Rock”, a benefit concert produced by ESP bass player Marten Andersson (Steelheart, George Lynch, Lizzy Borden) and featuring classical musicians, members from Goo Goo Dolls, Heart, Steelheart, Ex-Megdeth, Prong and a student orchestra.
The event pairs rockers and classical musicians with the non-profit OC Music & Dance School to present a star-studded concert benefiting music education for Orange County communities. Hosted by producer/bassist/American Idol judge Randy Jackson, the event features musicians including John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls, Nancy Wilson of Heart, Miljenko Matijevic (Steelheart, The Doors), Lynn Harrell (acclaimed cellist), longtime ESP guitar player Monte Pittman from Madonna and Prong, Chris Broderick (Ex-Megadeth, Act of Defiance), acclaimed cellist Stan Sharp (Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra) and many more.
Marten says, "I am so honored and proud to co-produce yet another, even greater 'From Classical to Rock' concert, benefiting music education. This time we joined forces with a nonprofit called Orange County Music & Dance School. It's an amazing nonprofit school who gives talented low income, minorities a change to be the next classical genius or the next rock star. All musicians involved with the event are contributing their time, energy and musical talents in an effort to benefit performing arts in Orange County."
