Twenty-two students from the Mason music school will perform a tribute to the ’70s rock band at two venues in September. The first concert takes place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15 at the school’s Sonic Boom Room, 755 Reading Road, Mason.
A second concert will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16 at 20th Century Theatre, 3021 Madison Road, Oakley.
The show, which is being billed as a “full-on rock concert,” is the culmination of three months of rehearsals and private lessons by students who hail from Mason, Lakota, Kings, Sycamore and Cincinnati Country Day schools.
“Preparing for this show has been an awesome experience for our kids,” said school owner Tim Garry. “Led Zeppelin is a wonderful teaching show because the music is great and each part is challenging given that the four band mates rank among the best in rock on each of their instruments. From what I can tell from rehearsals, we have a tremendously good show on our hands.”
It’s the second concert performed by the school since it opened in Mason in April. The first concert, which featured music by Black Sabbath and The Rolling Stones, attracted more than 250 people.
“I was surprised by how good these kids are,” said Tracy Hanna, the mother of a student drummer who attended earlier shows. “When they are at their best they can rival most adult bands playing in Cincinnati.”
