Keith Levenson, conductor
Kick off the 2018 summer season and join Roger Daltrey performing The Who's 'TOMMY' with members of The Who Band (guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, guitarist Frank Simes, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Scott Devour) and The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia on June 19th. Witness the seminal rock opera like you've never heard it before!
Considered one of the seminal albums of the rock canon, in 2017, The Who played all of TOMMY for the first time in 28 years at the Royal Albert Hall in London as part of a benefit concert for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Roger performed it in its entirety with his band during his 2011 solo tour. The opportunity to bring an orchestral dynamic to the raw emotion and cathartic impact of the songs that cemented Daltrey’s legacy as a vocal powerhouse adds a compelling dimension to the music’s timelessness.
Daltrey comments, “I'm really looking forward to singing TOMMY, not only with my great backing group, but also some of the finest orchestras in the country. Pete Townshend’s rock music is particularly suited to being embellished by the sounds that an orchestra can add to the band. With the arrangements written by David Campbell, it should make a memorable night of entertainment for all those who love the arts.”
