Diversity of Rhythm in Rock in Rio

There has been 10 years that Rock in Rio does not take place in Rio de Janeiro, and last Friday, September 23rd, the festival started all over again! We had Claudia Leitte, Rihanna, Kate Perry and the best presentation of the day: Elton John.

            Elton John was born on March 25th, 1947 in London and in the 60’s he wrote some songs with his friends from The Beatles. He has won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Can you Feel the Love Tonight”, one Golden Globe Award for the same song, six Grammy Awards, and a Tony Award for Best Original Musical Score for “Aida”. Now he sings alone and he will be the last attraction of the first day in Rock in Rio 2011 because he has a great history in the Rock and Roll around the world.



Do you like Elton John?  
Was he the best presentation of the night?

 Classical Music in Rock in Rio

As Rock in Rio is about to start we shouldn't forget that there are other types of music. For instance, Classical Music.
Classical Music is the traditional and secular art music, but believe it or not, the instruments used in most classical music include the electric guitar. Classical Music can also take the form of a concerto, symphony, sonata, opera, dance music, suite, étude, symphonic poem and others.
This type of music, we suppose everybody likes, will be represented in Rock in Rio by Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira in the Symphonic Concert with the rock band Legião Urbana, Dado Villa-Lobos, Milton Nascimento and Marcelo Bonfá. At this show it will be possible to bring classical music and popular music together. 
Isn’t awesome? What do you think about it?

Take a look at  this video of Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira in Rock in Rio this year.
