For Dolyniuk, his first exposure to U2 was seeing the band’s videos on MTV.
“There was this thing where MTV used to play music videos back in the day,” he said. “Kids today don’t really quite understand that, but I grew up in that era. I remember seeing U2 do the rooftop concert for ‘Where the Streets Have No Name.’ Although they had been around for years prior that, the video era ushered in U2 for me. MTV was huge for many artists and that’s where U2 came online for me.”
According to Dolyniuk, it doesn’t matter your age or when you discovered U2, there is something for every music fan at a Rockin’ Orchestra Series concert.
“What’s great about these symphony shows is they reach a wide audience,” he said. “There’s always a hodgepodge of people in the audience, from grandparents to grandkids, and it’s the kind of show where everybody will have a great time.”
