YOUTH ROCK ORCHESTRA / MARK WOOD EXPERIENCE 7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $25.
How's this for a neat school recital: 100 students from Mills and Conway High on strings, brass and drums playing covers from Coldplay
, Michael Jackson
and the like. Even neater: they do all this alongside Mark Wood
, the original violinist for Trans-Siberian Orchestra and former student under Leonard Bernstein. Most kids have to play John Philip Sousa; the Youth Rock Orchestra
is playing John Lennon. The orchestra was formed by Izzy's Restaurant
co-owner (and former member of the Mark Wood Experience) Heather Isbell after a two-day workshop with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra member. The kids liked it so much, they decided to, well, “keep on truckin'.”
