Step inside the royal court as the Chi Phil Chamber Players present well-known tunes with a classical twist in a collection of covers arranged by Chi Phil’s own Benton Wedge.

The kings and queens of Westeros fight for control in the Game of Thrones theme, but Queen reigns supreme in Freddy Mercury’s legendary Bohemian Rhapsody. Rebels battle fiercely against the Empire in the ominous Imperial March from Star Wars, while the Dark Knight himself stalks the streets of Gotham looking for justice in Seal’s Kiss from a Rose from the Batman Forever soundtrack.

Meanwhile the king of game shows, Slumdog Millionaire, wins the day in Jai Ho, bluegrass Grammy-Award winners Nickel Creek get the classical treatment in Smoothie Song and Benton Wedge presents his own original composition. With classical versions of works that range from pop, rock, chamber music, film score and Bollywood, don’t miss your chance to join the kings and queens of classical music at City Winery.
