The genius of David Bowie's innovative range of musical styles influenced multiple generations of groundbreaking music. Hear his iconic music like never before when the Richmond Symphony, joined by a full rock band, performs Windborne’s “Music of David Bowie” on Saturday, February 25 at 8pm at the Altria Theater.

Experience David Bowie's unforgettable body of work with a concert that pays tribute to the legendary musician and epic storyteller. Joining the Symphony onstage will be guest conductor Brent Havens and vocalist Tony Vincent.

Check out some of the touring act's Bowie work below from a show in Atlanta last year:

“My concept for The Music of David Bowie was to take the music as close to the originals as we could and then add some colors to enhance what Bowie had done," said Havens. "The wonderful thing with an orchestra is that you have an entire palette to call upon. The band is reproducing what Bowie did on the albums, verbatim, and then having an orchestra behind the band gives the music a richness, a whole different feel, a whole different sense of power.”

This is a return to Altria for Windbourne, they came through last year with a Whitney Houston cover show that seemed similarly epic.

Tickets start at $20 and can be purchased online at richmondsymphony.com or by calling 1.800.514.ETIX.
