BWW TV: The Stereo Hideout Orchestra Brings 'Brahms v. Radiohead' to Brooklyn's Kings Theatre 5/19
Kings Theatre, in association with the Catskill Jazz Factory and WQXR, will play host to a must-see musical event: The Stereo Hideout Orchestra, led by virtuoso composer, conductor, producer, and arranger Steve Hackman, will marry the likes of two seemingly disparate entities, Brahms's 1st Symphony and Radiohead's OK Computer, through the good graces of a 55-piece orchestral sprawl, three guest vocalists Will Post, Andrew Lipke and Kéren Tayár, and a ton of ambition.

Hackman, whose hybrid works effortlessly blend the classical and contemporary, has been engaged by many of the country's leading orchestras, including Boston Pops, Pittsburgh Symphony and Nashville Symphony. But May 19th marks a special occasion: the first time this music will be played under his musical brand of Stereo Hideout.
For the Kings event on May 19th, Hackman has set himself about the task of finding Brooklyn-based musos to fill out his orchestra, in keeping with the Kings' trademark ethos of creating community-focused interactivity. Hackman says, "I cannot wait to introduce Brooklyn to the Stereo Hideout Orchestra. This is not your typical symphony orchestra: this is the new breed. The fact that they are at the highest level of technique and virtuosity on their intruments is only the beginning. They are all creators themselves- composers, arrangers, multi-instrumentalists and multi-genre."
