Overview

Old School, the new album from New York City’s East Village Opera Company, is an album 300 years in the making. EVOC has once again taken a selection of opera arias and re-imagined them as popular songs, using full symphony orchestra, R&B horns, and choir alongside the group’s guitars, drums, keyboards, string quartet, and singers. Arias by Verdi, Puccini, Bach, Mozart, and Wagner collide with Rock and Roll, R&B, 60’s and 70’s Pop, Surf, and Soul in an explosive mosaic of sound that is deliciously eclectic and singularly cohesive at the same time. The result is a record that is entirely familiar and boldly original -- taking a tour through centuries worth of popular music. From the Label
