Dark Side of the Yule Comes to North Shore in December
Christmas Meets Classic Rock in Classical Blast's live holiday concert, Dark Side of the Yule. The show melds Christmas and rock music in ways never heard before, with music by bands like Metallica, Evanescence, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and so many others, all mashed with holiday classics, baroque carols, classical and originals. Is it Christmas, is it rock, is it pop, is it traditional? It's all of the above and more, all rolled into a series of musical stories that explore a few of the holiday season's darker themes. No worries, everyone see the light by the end!
The show features the world class talents of Chicago musicians, Bill Syniar (bass), Dave Kelly (drums), Scott Daniel (violin), Kelsee Vandervall (cello) and vocalist-guitarist, Sophie Monroy. This year's show also features special guests, Scottish violinist Katy Gillan and keyboardist Phil Balsano. The concert show is packed with great musical performances of songs from the band's album of the same name, with new songs added each year.
