Henry Ford II will rock out with Majesty - the Best of British Rock

Symphony Band pairs with rock band Addlestone Gate to sponsor March 8 musical tribute

Henry Ford II High School will be rocking as the high school symphony orchestra pairs with the Detroit area-based rock band Addlestone Gate on March 8 to present Majesty – the Best of British Rock.

This evening will not be a typical high school band/orchestra concert, as the symphony band will not be playing classics but rather classic rock, scored for a symphonic orchestra and accompanied by an outstanding professional rock trio.

The 15-song show features music from The Beatles, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, Led Zeppelin and others, including original songs by Addlestone Gate.

Majesty-the Best of British Rock takes place on Friday March 8th at 8:00 PM in the Henry Ford II H.S. Performing Arts Center, 11911 Clinton River Rd. in Sterling Heights. Tickets are $10 adult, $8 student/senior, and $5 for 12 and under. Tickets are available on-line at www.showtix4u.com, or at the door. Proceeds benefit the HFII Instrumental Music Program.

The HFII Symphony Orchestra is a joint effort of the Symphonic Band & String Orchestra, rehearsing the extended repertoire at a fevered pace.

Addlestone Gate has toured extensively throughout Michigan, opened for the Barenaked Ladies at DTE Energy Music Theater, and performed with the Mid-Michigan Festival Symphony Orchestra. Two of the band members - Mike & Nathan Wirth - are graduates of Henry Ford II High School.
