American Youth Symphony performance at Disney Hall LA.

Hey folks, Steve here.

I’m thrilled to announce that I will be performing at Disney Hall in Los Angeles with “American Youth Symphony” on March 11, 2017. I’ve been going to concerts at Disney Hall since it was constructed and feel tremendous appreciation to have been invited to perform my music there. The pieces that will be performed are…

1. There’s Still Something Dead In Here (without Steve)
2. Kill the Guy with the Ball (with Steve)
3. The Murder (with Steve)
4. Call it Sleep (with Steve)

These pieces were chosen by Carlos Izcaray who is the exceptional conductor of this event. It’s interesting to note that the first 3 pieces are perhaps some of my darkest and most brooding music.

“There’s Still Something Dead in Here” is a complex, dense and very atonal piece of contemporary music.
“Kill the Guy with the Ball” is violently fast and furious and the Orchestra version is just ripping.
“The Murder” is macabre and harmonically heavy.
“Call It Sleep” is from Flex-Able with an updated symphonic orchestration and will be a blessed relief after the first pieces.

Interesting that all the titles of these pieces could lead one to believe I have a preoccupation with Death! Truth is, I’m way too alive for that. Hope to see you at the show.

Cohen Anderson killer line up. Yngwie would be like "ok repeat after me(blitzkreig arpeggios)". You get that? No? Find a new hobby.

I've never been to something like this, could anyone tell me how skilled do you have to be to register for this event considering I've heard you get to jam with Steve Vai at one point? I'm guessing you have to be quite skilled.

3 and a half k ? No chance


Greig how much are tickets to Palm Springs ? 😄

Mr Vai; I wish you could run this academy in Essex in the uk. This is something I would love to do.

🎙Palm Springs , listen up to Palm Springs Radio, Business Hour Radio Hero Ron Camacho 🎸🎼

I have read Yngwie statements about hating the way Steve plays, wonder if he has changed his mind. Steve Morse, I mean.

Steve cuando nos darían el privilegio de tocar Eddie Van Halen Steve Vía e Yngwie Malmsteen saludos Caída

How about some practice like eight hours a day it's a job exercise theory execution . Then you can really play see you at the cross roads
