The Lincoln Park High School Symphony Orchestra has been rehearsing Braun’s charts for the performance as part of their curriculum for several months.  Performing with Braun as part of his rhythm section will be Philippe Saisse, who produced and orchestrated the album on keys,  Mike Mason on bass,  Dale Prasco on guitar and Jake Fansler on drums.  The Lincoln Park High School Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Karl Lenss, features 65 student musicians,  including a 50-piece string section.

As professional musicians we all aspire to be part of this process   What a great opportunity for us all!

Philip Castleberry, of Lincoln Park High School’s Performing Arts Department further commented: We are  thrilled to have been chosen by Rick to be the first school orchestra to perform this wonderful material with him.  This is a dream come true for our students and a great learning experience.
