St. Louis Symphony Doing a Concert of Michael Jackson Music



This is really badass: On Saturday, June 11, the St. Louis Symphony is going to be doing a concert called "Music of Michael Jackson." The SLSO's description of the event:

For one night only, the Symphony will perform music spanning four decades of Michael Jackson's career. Brent Havens will conduct the orchestra and guest band while vocalist James Delisco leads in singing Jackson's electrifying and moving hits. "Music of Michael Jackson" journeys through each era of Jackson's career from "ABC," "I'll Be There," and "Got to Be There" to "Beat It," "Thriller," "The Way You Make Me Feel" and more.

The event is at 7;30 p.m. at Powell Symphony Hall and tickets range from $30 to $65. Here are a few symphonies/orchestras from around the world doing the music of MJ:
