ASO and The Machine to perform Pink Floyd

ASO and The Machine to perform Pink Floyd
The Machine, America’s top live Pink Floyd show, will perform backed by The Alabama Symphony Orchestra at The Alabama Theatre on Saturday, May 7th at 8:00 P.M.   Tickets are $29.50-$62.50.   This is open to patrons of all ages.  For more information call 205-975-2787 or visit the event page.
The orchestra will be led by Christopher Confessore, Resident Conductor and Principal Pops Conductor of The Alabama Symphony Orchestra.  The program will include three sets: the first is a diverse mix of Pink Floyd’s extensive repertoire; the second being Wish You Were Here in its entirety; and the third will be an extended encore with just The Machine.  Additionally, Lightwave International, the laser company utilized by Roger Waters, will duplicate the classic Pink Floyd concert experience.
Confessore comments, “Last year’s sold out performance by the ASO and The Machine was one of the highlights of the season! The atmospheric instrumentals that are such a huge part of the Pink Floyd sound match perfectly with a symphony orchestra. Add a spectacular laser show and you have a truly unique collaboration, and a concert that folks will NOT want to miss!”
The members of The Machine include: Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals), Tahrah Cohen
