Institute for Popular Music: Tribute to Progressive Rock

When: Sat., Feb. 6, 8 p.m. 2016

It features River Campus faculty, alumni, and students from the University’s Music Department, backed by members of Rochester’s premier Yes Tribute band, Going for the One. While progressive rock- or prog rock- evolved in the late 1960s as part of the British Invasion, the genre draws inspiration from classical music, jazz, and the blues. “What made it aspirational for people like me is that for the first time you saw people taking rock music seriously,” said Covach.
