I've got genuine mixed feelings about seeing a David Bowie impersonator. But since I never got to see the man himself in concert before he died last year, that's as close as I'm gonna get. On Friday, world-renowned Bowie impersonator David Brighton will join The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra to present "The Music of David Bowie." The rock show is in good hands with conductor Brent Havens, who has been the arranger and guest conductor for 14 internationally traveling, symphonic rock programs honoring Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Queen, and Prince. "The Music of David Bowie" celebrates more than four decades of the rock and roll chameleon's work. Brighton, who has performed alongside Bowie in TV commercials, will front a full rock band in addition to the RPO.
The RPO presents "The Music of David Bowie" on Friday, April 7, at Kodak Center for Performing Arts, 200 West Ridge Road. 8 p.m. $23-$73. 454-2100; rpo.org.
