It’s become a tradition for rock bands to team up with Cleveland’s Contemporary Youth Orchestra giving fans truly unique renditions of favorite hits while also giving local youth the opportunity to perform with some of today’s most amazing bands.
Last year saw Night Ranger answer the call – and things went so well that they’ve decided to release an album of the evening.
Titled 40 Years and a Night with Contemporary Youth Orchestra – the album will be out on Oct. 20th. Recorded right here in the good ole CLE. The press release explains all.
40 Years and a Night with Contemporary Youth Orchestra will be available on CD, Vinyl (including limited editions), DVD, Blu-ray, and digitally. The album was recorded during a one-of-a-kind one night only Night Ranger performance with Cleveland’s Contemporary Youth Orchestra at the Key Bank State Theatre in Cleveland, OH on November 9, 2022. The Contemporary Youth Orchestra (CYO) is made up of 80+ musicians aged 12 to 18, representing more than 40 schools in Ohio. The students performed alongside Night Ranger throughout their entire set and these unique renditions of their greatest hits was also their first time ever performing with a symphonic orchestra live. This made for a truly once in a lifetime Night Ranger concert event, that the band is so excited to share with the world.
The band released a video along with the album announcement – check this out.
