Whether high-flying, wall-crawling, or Batmobile-riding, superheroes always get the coolest capes, the coolest cars – and the coolest theme songs. CJOB’s The Couch Potatoes return to the WSO to celebrate memorable superhero themes from blockbusters like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, X-Men: The Last Stand, and others.
This concert features guest conductor Stuart Chafetz who is the Principal Pops Conductor of the Columbus Symphony and the newly appointed Principal Pops Conductor of the Marin Symphony. Chafetz, a conductor celebrated for his dynamic and engaging podium presence, is increasingly in demand with orchestras across the continent and this season Chafetz will be on the podium in Detroit, Houston, Milwaukee, Naples, Philly Pops, Cincinnati Pops and Pittsburgh. He enjoys a special relationship with The Phoenix Symphony where he leads multiple programs annually.
