The Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata will present its reimagined score from Rodger and Hammerstein's iconic "The Sound of Music" in a 7:30 p.m., Feb. 8 performance at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.
The performance injects new life into the classic score — imagine the von Trapp children paired with the Jackson Five to record "Do Re Me," or the abbey boasting a rhythm and blues section to back up "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria" — fusing elements of country, rock, rhythm and blues, and jazz.
The music is featured on Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata's album, "The Hills Are Alive." The group was formed in 2009 by four musicians who spent years playing in backup bands and orchestra pits for Broadway musicals and the East Village Opera Company.
Tickets are $28 and may be purchased at http://www.liedcenter.org, at the Lied Center box office or by calling 402-472-4747.
