About event

Fantastic Year by Vickeman accompanied by Symphony Orchestra. A member of the legendary rock band Yes will present the Orchestral Rick program in Kyiv on December 5 in the October Palace.

Yes there are and remain one of the most successful and influential bands of the progressive year. In the US alone, the band sold over 13 million albums, was awarded the Grammy Award for the best intro rock performance in Cinema and had five more nominations. In 2017, the Yes band, and Rick Weikman as a member of the band, made it to the Hall of Fame of rock and roll.

Weikman is a British musician, author and presenter who dreamed of becoming a concert pianist, but instead chose the path of a successful session musician. His shoulder is collaboration with David Bowie over iconic Space Oddity and Life On Mars, as well as with Junior's Eyes, T. Rex, Elton John and Cat Stephens. He has been famous not only for playing Yes, but also for a successful solo career. His most successful works are The Six Wives of Henry VIII (1973), Journey to the Center of the Earth (1974) and The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table (1975).

In the portfolio of Maestro Weikmen not only musical works - he became co-author of comedy series Grumpy Old Men and Watchdog on the Air Force TV channel.
