All hail The King! Elvis Presley reigned supreme as The King of Rock n’ Roll in the ‘50s. His energetic style and wanton stage presence evoked controversial reactions, with one local Wisconsin newspaper calling Presley a “definite danger to the security of the United States,” in a letter addressed to FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Nonetheless, Elvis topped charts with infectious ballads well into the ‘70s. With hits like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Hound Dog,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” and “All Shook Up,” Elvis took the world by storm and sparked an evolution in popular music like never before. Join Michael Krajewski, Music Director of the Philly Pops and the VSO, and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra for a rockin’ good time.
