“It was a dream come true to have NIGHT RANGER music accompanied by an entire symphonic band… including our own! Although now, we’re spoiled, and we want to carry the orchestra with us everywhere we go!!” — Jack Blades
“Playing the show with the Cleveland CYO and being able to record It was an incredible and unique experience. To have younger musicians not only embrace but enjoy playing our music was a new high for us as a band. You could see all the hard work they put into rehearsals, and finally getting to perform it live was an incredible new benchmark in our career.” — Kelly Keagy
“I can check this one off my bucket list. Having the CYO backing us for this show was just amazing and it really took NIGHT RANGER to another level. Looking forward to its release and sharing with the world!” — Brad Gillis
This one-of-a-kind, one night only NIGHT RANGER performance with Cleveland’s own Contemporary Youth Orchestra was at the Key Bank State Theatre in Cleveland, OH on November 9, 2022. The Contemporary Youth Orchestra (CYO) is made up of 80+ musicians aged 12 to 18, representing more than 40 schools in Ohio. It fosters students’ technical ability and creative growth in both an inspiring and supportive community. The students performed alongside NIGHT RANGER throughout their entire set and these unique renditions of their greatest hits was also their first time ever performing with a symphonic orchestra live. All of this is what made this a truly once in a lifetime NIGHT RANGER concert event.
