Tom Petty’s honest and relatable songs will surely lead him to someday be recognized as one of the great American songwriters. In the final show of their performance season, the students of the Uptown Music Collective will pay tribute to the legacy of Tom Petty. Performing hits from his extensive catalog, including songs from his work with Heartbreakers, the Traveling Wilburys, and his solo career.
Runnin' Down a Dream: The Music of Tom Petty will feature Collective students who have been diligently preparing for this event for over two months. Along with the live music, there will be a professional grade light and sound show organized by the students themselves. As with all Uptown Music Collective performances, the students are not only the performers but also direct the show. There is also a group of younger students, called “Tech Monkeys” who will serve as stage technicians. The cast for the show is drawn from the Uptown Music Collective’s much heralded Special Performance Group 1.
