Rock music and classical music might seem like they would be completely opposed to one another. One champions outrageousness, guitars and excess, while the other oozes refinement, poise and good taste - but there are a surprisingly large number of instances where these two seemingly adversarial worlds cross over. Join us as we explore the heady combination of rock and classical!
