    A steady rain did not deter people from gathering Saturday for a pair of political events on opposites sides of the State Capitol, and opposite sides of the Syrian refugee issue.

    More than 200 gathered on the capitol steps to listen to a series of speakers advocating in favor of welcoming Syrian refugees to Connecticut, while a group of 30 people in opposition to allowing Syrian refugees to settle in Connecticut gathered on the other side of the capitol before marching to the governor's mansion.

CT PHOTO JUNKIE | Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra Lives Up to its Billing at SummerWind

  • 46 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • Do you remember rock? It's easy to forget. Time passes and life grinds away at you and sometimes you can get disconnected from your musical roots.

    On Sunday, July 29, 2012, at the
    SS&C SummerWind Performing Arts Center in Windsor, the Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra took a crowd of several hundred fans back to the moment they discovered that they loved rock'n'roll. This 10-vocalist ensemble has a HUGE sound and, dare we say it, they just play Brit-Rock songs better than a lot of the surviving original bands can play them today. Loud, fist-pumping songs that offer all the energy, harmony, complexity and depth intended by their original composers - including the Beatles, the Who, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Queen . . . you name it. They play it.

    If you missed the show Sunday, make sure you get out to see them next time they're in the area - you won't be disappointed.
