Awesöme Orchestra | Epic Free Classical Concerts
Punk Rock Orchestra was a group of orchestral and punk rock musicians that played tons of punk songs arranged for orchestra.
They haven’t played together in a while, but many of them are still in the Bay Area and have played with Awesöme Orchestra, so they thought it would be fun to do a session with their alumni playing several of their bad-ass arrangements.
Free, but an RSVP is required; donations are welcome.
