School Of Rock: A Tribute to Rock ‘n’ Roll

Feb. 27 School Of Rock: A Tribute to Rock ‘n’ Roll Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St. 6:30 p.m., $10, 691.8875 The best rock ‘n’ rollers manage to balance dedication, practice and method with sweaty, reckless, passion. If your kiddo already has the heart, School of Rock can teach the technique. For more than a decade the outfit has trained budding musicians ages 7-18, emerging as a national leader in youth musical education. Last fall the program opened an Omaha branch. This first performance by its inaugural class celebrates the greats of the past whose influences reverberate in the music world. Incorporating pop, rock and soul, the mini maestros will present an aural seminar on Chuck Berry, Elvis, Little Richard and others in what’s sure to be a heavily rocking history lesson. Your assignment: Be there to rock out.
