Melissa Etheridge @ CSO
Melissa Etheridge usually performs with musicians well-versed in the rhythms of rock ’n’ roll. But for her next appearance in Chicago, the iconic rock star has chosen as her backing band a group of musicians more familiar with the intricacies of Beethoven and Brahms. Joined by members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Etheridge will appear June 16 for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association’s 25th annual Corporate Night. Sean O’Loughlin will be the guest conductor. If you’ve ever wondered how Etheridge’s many hit songs would sound if backed by an orchestra, you’re about to get your answer. Always ready for a challenge, Etheridge admits it’s a pairing that many rock artists would not want to try, but she’s confident it will be a “very memorable evening.”
Melissa Etheridge plays the CSO on June 16th. Please visit cso.org for tickets and more information.
