Idols & Icons Bring Down The Palace Theater

On a cool fall evening the best vocalists and musicians, gathered together on one stage for a night of Idols & Icons. The show began with, James Taylor’s “Fire & Rain” performed by Donna Colton and ended with “Hey Jude” by The Beatles with Joe Altier leading the whole ensemble. We enjoyed a collage of some of the world’s greatest music. From Country’s Patsy Cline to Rock’s Heart. From the 1930’s Judy Garland’s “Over the Rainbow” to 1970’s “New York State” of Mind by Billy Joel. All performed by the best of Syracuse Musicians. I can’t say enough about all the performers at this show raising money for Ophelia’s Place. I guess if a picture paints a thousand words then I’ll let the pictures and videos tell the story.
