During a concert performance by The Florida Orchestra at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg last month, principal percussionist John Shaw came out on stage to help recreate GEICO‘s ridiculous triangle solo commercial. It was an amusing way to promote subscritions to the orchestra’s concert series.
Triangle solo? Surprising. Not surprising? Principal Percussionist John Shaw recreating the “triangle solo” GEICO commercial at a recent Coffee Concert with Stuart Malina on the podium. But it was their little secret. The rest of The Florida Orchestra had no idea what was about to happen in the middle of the concert’s second half.
