Hamilton band and choir to perform with founding member of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Mark Wood

Hamilton High School band and choir will perform with Mark Wood, founding member of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. in commemoration of Hamilton’s 50th anniversary.

Not only is Mark Wood an Emmy-award winning composer and string master, he has collaborated with and appeared alongside some the biggest names in music including Lenny Kravitz, Celine Dion and Kanye West. As a member of his touring band, Wood performed with the legendary Billy Joel for both historic final concerts at Shea Stadium, sharing the stage with Paul McCartney, Steven Tyler and Roger Daltry.

Wood has appeared on the world’s most venerable stages including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Madison Square Garden, and he now performs with our very own Hamilton High School band and choir.

The musical selections are surprising and include Wood's own compositions and arrangements of classic rock and contemporary music such as Tina Turner’s “River Deep Mountain High,” the Beatles’ “A Little Help from My Friends,” Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train," Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven," and the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

This collaboration is generously sponsored by the Hamilton Education Foundation, whose mission is to enhance, extend and enrich learning opportunities for Hamilton School District students. The event is supported by in-kind donations from the Milwaukee Marriott West Hotel and Proline Entertainment, LLC.

General seating tickets are $20; add $5 at the door. They may be purchased online at www.HamiltonFineArtsCenter.com or by visiting the HFAC box office on Wednesdays from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. Tickets also may be purchased by contacting Hamilton Band Booster President Michael Sendelbach at michael.w.sendelbach@jci.com and will support the band program.
