Sycamore Community School students will join renowned electric violinist Joe Deninzon for the SEE1 Rock Orchestra concert live on February 24.
Sycamore Electric Ensemble (also known as SEE1) is Cincinnati’s first high school rock orchestra. Formed in 2003, SEE1 is composed of electric string instruments along with traditional garage band instruments. The concert will feature a professional light show.
The group will play contemporary hits by AC/DC, Heart, Fall Out Boy, Sound Garden, Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, and Nirvana, plus some of Joe Deninzon’s original music at Sycamore High School on February 24 at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $10.
A group of students from E.H. Greene Intermediate and Maple Dale Elementary is also teaming up with SEE1 for the performance. The young rock orchestra group known as "Everlasting Monsoon" traveled to Cleveland this past summer to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum.
Joe Deninzon has been hailed by critics as “The Jimi Hendrix of the Violin,” because of his innovative style on acoustic and electric seven-string violin. A musician who transcends many genres, Joe has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, Les Paul, Phoebe Snow, Aretha Franklin, and Ritchie Blackmore, and performed for President Clinton. He can be heard on over 100 recordings and jingles as a violinist and string arranger.
Deninzon is the lead singer and violinist for the progressive rock band, Stratospheerius, and a member of the Latin Jazz string quartet, Sweet Plantain, which tours extensively.
Deninzon will also host workshops with students at Sycamore High School, Sycamore Junior High, and perform at E.H. Greene Intermediate on February 23.
