Friday 4/19/2019 7:30 PM
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin, the original heavy metal band, as the Houston Symphony covers a set list of all their best known works! Rock out to all their acclaimed hits you know and love. Amplified by a full rock band, this one night only event is sure to leave you believing that “all that glitters is gold."
It will be Randy Jackson lead singer and guitarist of the rock band Zebra in-charge of the vocals with symphony conductor, Brewnt Havens leading the orchestra at Jones Hall for the performing Arts. Jackson first foray into recording success began with the self-titled Zebra debut album, released on Atlantic Records in 1983. Critically acclaimed for its lush rock sounds, due in large part to Randy’s searing lead vocals and soaring guitar leads, the album sold 75,000 copies the first week. “Who’s Behind The Door” and “Tell Me What You Want,” written by Randy, received serious notice in the press and almost instantly helped to form legions of Zebra fans. He produced and engineered the group’s latest release, Zebra IV.
In 1989, Randy toured as keyboardist, guitarist and backing vocalist with the original, reunited Jefferson Airplane, their last tour together. He has also worked extensively in the area of musical software and hardware development.
Berklee-trained arranger/conductor Brent Havens has written music for orchestras, feature films and virtually every variety of television program. His TV work includes movies for major networks, commercials, sports music for ESPN and cartoons.
Brent worked with the Doobie Brothers and the Milwaukee Symphony, arranging and conducting the combined group for Harley Davidson’s 100th Anniversary Birthday Party Finale attended by more than 150,000 fans. He has worked with some of the world’s greatest orchestras, including London’s Royal Philharmonic; the Houston and Nashville Symphonies; the Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas and Fort Worth Symphony Orchestras; the Minnesota Orchestra; the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and countless others. For the past several years, he has conducted the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra with Music of Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin, Queen and U2 shows.
Brent composed the score for the film Quo Vadis, a Premier Pictures remake of the 1956 gladiator film. In 2013, he worked with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens to arrange and produce the music for the Thanksgiving Day halftime show between the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, adapting both classical music and rock songs into a single four-minute show.
He is arranger/guest conductor for 14 symphonic rock programs, including the Music of Led Zeppelin, the Music of the Doors, the Music of Pink Floyd, the Music of the Eagles, the Music of Queen, the Music of Michael Jackson, the Music of The Who, The Music of Whitney Houston, the Music of The Rolling Stones, the Music of U2, the Music of Journey, the Music of Elton John, the Music of David Bowie and the Music of Prince. Brent Havens also premiered a full orchestral show for Lou Gramm, The Voice of Foreigner with Lou singing out front.
