Drummer Stewart Copeland was a commanding force behind renowned rock trio the Police, which formed at the height of the punk revolution in 1977. Five years later, the band released Synchronicity, and Copeland scored the Francis Ford Coppola film Rumble Fish. Copeland would go on to write music for dozens of films and TV shows while building his skills as a composer of operas, ballets and orchestral works. On Saturday, February 25, he’ll team up with the Colorado Symphony — no stranger to collaborating with artists outside the classical world — to perform Tyrant’s Crush, Copeland’s concerto for trap set and orchestra. And while it was clear from his time with the Police that he was a powerful drummer, he’ll scale back his dynamic range to perform with the orchestra, which will also perform pieces by composers who influenced Copeland, including The Chairman Dances, by John Adams; Pulcinella Suite, by Igor Stravinsky; and La Valse, by Maurice Ravel.
