Carl Baldassarre Presents

Baldassarre Rock Orchestra

Artist Information

"The Baldassarre Rock Orchestra is a magical world where the power of rock and classical music unites in a spectacle of sound, lights, and symphonic grandeur!

Our 9-piece rock orchestra is led by the award-winning guitarist and composer Carl Baldassarre and his band, along with the world-renown string quartet OPUS 216. The show is a spectacle where classical music and rock music unite, beckoning music enthusiasts for an unparalleled live experience with its fusion of 1970s and 1870s aesthetics both musically and visually.

The orchestras repertoire spans a diverse discography of original rock and classical music as well as interpretations of classic rock songs by Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Deep Purple, Stevie Wonder and more! Most recently the rock orchestra has been performing original music from Baldassarre’s 2024 Grammy contending album, Grand Boulevard which received Album of the Year and Rock Song of the Year consideration. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, Guitar World magazine described Grand Boulevard as “…a sprawling album full of ingenuity.”

Check out Baldassarre’s music on his website www.carlbaldassarremusic.com and while you’re at it, check out his popular YouTube channel where he is dubbed “The Professor of Classic Rock” where he breaks great rock music from the 1970s with warm pedagogy.

This is Baldassarre’s 1st performance at the Cleveland Agora in 40 years! A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Carl Baldassarre experienced early success as a guitarist for the rock band Abraxas. He has amassed a significant and diverse recording catalogue in many genres having worked with many celebrated rock and classical musicians including the London Symphonic Chamber Orchestra and members of Tower of Power, Tears for Fears, Genesis, Kiss and many more.
