Winterstate with Full Symphony Orchestra (POSTPONED)
September 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20.00
WINTERSTATE HAS POSTPONED THIS SHOW UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
TICKETS PURCHASED WILL BE HONORED ON THE RESCHEDULED DATE
Unfortunately Winterstate with an Orchestra will be postponed. A member of the band tested positive for COVID and will not be able to perform. It is in the best interest of everyone’s health and safety to postpone the event to a time when everyone is healthy.
I am actively looking to book this show for a date sometime in the future. As to when, I am uncertain, but I am dedicated to keeping ticket holders and interested parties fully up to date as to when and where this show will happen. I will relay pertinent information to everyone as soon as I have it.
This show was meant to be more than just a concert, it was meant to elevate the arts in Rochester. It was meant to bring people together from different musical and artistic backgrounds. It was meant to help an incredible new venue establish itself as a premier spot to perform and showcase local art. This IS a passion project of mine, and it will always be important to me that this show happens, and happens in the way it was meant to happen. I will be forever dedicated to bringing great music to Rochester, and I hope to bring you this show in the future.
Doors: 6:30PM | Music 7:00PM | $15 advance / $20 day of show | All Ages
Openers: Ashley Selnes & Jeremy Jewell
WINTERSTATE is an alternative rock band co-founded in 2015 in Valencia, Spain by Berklee College of Music alumni Kelvin Killmon and Alexander Ortberg.
Alexander Ortberg and Kelvin Killmon grew up in Minnesota – almost close enough to share an area code – but they were destined to cross paths 4,500 miles from home under the sun-bleached palm trees at Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain. The two became close friends while pursuing their Master’s degrees in performance and production, and began working on original songs together.
When the pair graduated in 2016, Alex returned to Minnesota while Kelvin moved to Seattle, but their musical collaboration has continued to flourish. Connected by interstate 90, they chose the name WINTERSTATE as a reference to their long-distance work relationship and the icy climates of Minnesota and northern Washington. Their debut album “The Ride” was recorded simultaneously in both locations – with musical ideas being developed and traded back and forth over the Internet.
Our passion is centered around creating community, and sharing music that brings people closer together. We’re excited to share this new chapter in our musical journey with you.
