New orchestral interpretations retain the energy and passion of the originals, elevating their stature, and taking the direction that composers like Jimmy Page and Kurt Cobain might have taken if they’d had forty musicians to work with rather than three! For each performance we’ll select our set list from the classics below:

 

Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin)
Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)
Rolling in the Deep (Adele)
Call Me (Blondie)
While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Beatles)
Another Brick in the Wall (Pink Floyd)
I’d Do Anything for Love, (But I Won’t Do That) (Meat Loaf)
Hotel California (Eagles)
Go Your Own Way (Fleetwood Mac)
Dancing in the Dark (Bruce Springsteen)
Money for Nothing (Dire Straits)
Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)
More Than a Feeling (Boston)
Under Pressure (David Bowie/Queen)
Layla (Eric Clapton)
The Logical Song (Supertramp)
A Whiter Shade of Pale (Procol Harum)
25 or 6 to 4 (Chicago)
Gimme Shelter (Rolling Stones)
Locomotive Breath (JethroTull)

 

We’re really interested to know which songs you think we should choose or if there is a song you think should be added to the list, so please send your choices or suggestions to songs@chrysalisorchestra.com or post to our Facebook page.

Thanks.
