The Macon Symphony Orchestra’s annual January Pops concert is expected to sell out once again, as this year’s program features “Windborne’s the Music of the Rolling Stones” on Jan. 17 at the City Auditorium.
“Our approach is to look at what music would be the most inter-generational. All generations love the Eagles; all generations love Michael Jackson. We had a great experience with the Motown shows,” MSO CEO Sheryl Towers said, referring to previous Pops programs.
“The Music of the Rolling Stones” is an orchestral rock symphony conducted and arranged by Brent Havens, and the program will feature favorites such as “Satisfaction,” “Paint It Black,” “Ruby Tuesday,” “Honky Tonk Women” and many more. Vocals will be provided by Windborne’s Brody Dolyniuk.
Balcony seating is available, and a few tables still are available as well, Towers said. Guests with table reservations are invited to bring a meal to enjoy before the show.
“We have over 90 tables. People bring picnics, and some have their dinner catered. It’s a big social event from 6-7:30 p.m., when the program begins,” she said.
