Asphalt Orchestra opens Valley Performing Art Center’s fall season

Asphalt Orchestra opens Valley Performing Art Centers fall season

Kat Russell

Unlike most orchestra’s, the New York based Asphalt Orchestra is a collaboration between leaping choreography and visualizing music that engulfs the audience with a personal approach.

Asphalt Orchestra performed fourteen exhilarating songs Thurs. Sept. 13 at the Valley Performing Arts Center (VPAC), with free admission to all CSUN Students. The Orchestra is a 12-piece marching band and their instruments include piccolo, soprano saxophone, alto saxophone, tenor saxaphone, two trumpets, two trombones, sousaphone, snare drum, bass drum and quad toms.

The Orchestra incorporated songs using very dissonant chords,  as well as light hearted melodies. The atmosphere became so eery that the chords made your spine shiver. Whereas the upbeat melodies brought out a little marching spirit in you.
