International Rock, Opera and Classical Artists Keep the Faith in New Music Video
“Ode to Believin’”
Original Mashup of Beethoven’s Symphony #9 and Journey’s 1981 Hit Song
Although theatres have been dark throughout New York City for the past several months, creative spirits in artists have continued to burn bright. World renowned Opera Singer Alyson Cambridge and Guitar Virtuoso Tony Bruno, co-producers of the upcoming new music fusion show, Rock Me Amadeus, announced the show last fall and have been releasing a series of music videos to give fans a taste of the show’s music and all-star cast. Today, the cast releases their latest music video, “Ode to Believin’”, for their original mashup of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” and Journey’s anthemic “Don’t Stop Believin’”, featuring the show’s international stars from opera, rock and classical music. The show is slated to open this fall in NYC.
With most of the world still gripped by the pandemic, Cambridge and Bruno hope their latest video will inspire feelings of nostalgia for pre-pandemic days as well as bring a message of optimism that things will eventually get better. Cambridge says, “We wanted to bring a message of hope, new beginnings and joy moving into this new year, and with our greatest hope of returning to live performances and enjoying music like we used to.”
Shot in the D’Angelico Guitars Showroom in Midtown Manhattan during the pandemic months, the “Ode to Believin’” video features the Rock Me Amadeus cast members, including Lead Guitarist and D’Angelico Ambassador Tony Bruno, who arranged the song. The five vocalists in the video – Alyson Cambridge, Chloe Lowery, Kia Warren, Victor Ryan Robertson and Toby Rand – blend their Opera, Broadway, Rock and R&B styles in the song. Violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, Drummer Brian Delaney, Pianist Henry Aronson and Bassist Luis Guzman provide their instrumental expertise from remote locations. The video was edited by Simon Wheeldon.
More video teasers and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage will be released via the show’s Website, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube every month through the summer to give fans a preview of the exciting experience to come. Look out for announcements on the Rock Me Amadeus opening dates and venues around New York City on RockMeAmadeusLive.com.
