Tommy Shaw & The Contemporary Youth Orchestra ‘Sing For The Day’ Available Now!
Sing For The Day!, available now on Blu-ray, CD & digitally, showcases Styx guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw's rousing 2016 solo turn with the Cleveland-based Contemporary Youth Orchestra, under the direction of principal conductor/founder Liza Grossman.
Alongside guitarist/musical director Will Evankovich and backed by the next generation of the finest high-school-aged musicians in Ohio, Shaw also celebrates the tenth anniversary of Styx's triumphant 2006 One With Everything performance with the CYO.
Here, the CYO & Chorus bring new life to many classic band and solo tracks in front of an enthusiastic audience at the intimate Waetjen Auditorium in Cleveland, including "Blue Collar Man," "Girls With Guns," "High Enough," "Too Much Time on My Hands," "Crystal Ball" (featuring the debut of its never-recorded lost verse), and most especially "Renegade," highlighted by an epic guitar/violin duel between Shaw and noted CYO alum Lavinia Pavlish. "It was so much bigger and more everlasting than any of us imagined it would be," marvels Shaw - now see and hear just how magical Sing was for yourself.
The Blu-ray includes 96K stereo audio of four songs from Tommy Shaw and Contemporary Youth Orchestra not included in the show. These four songs soundtrack a slideshow of photos from the show, rehearsals & behind the scenes.
