Stone Temple Pilots to reunite with Chester Bennington for charity show

Stone Temple Pilots will reunite with singer Chester Bennington of Linkin Park for a one-off performance at From Bach To Rock, a charity concert to benefit public schools in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

The March 26 event at the Norris Theater and Pavilion mixes rockers with world-renowned classical musicians to take the audience on a journey from 17th century to today’s modern hits, with proceeds to be donated to the Peninsula Education Foundation (PEF).

All musicians involved with From Bach To Rock are contributing their time, energy and musical talents in an effort to benefit public education by helping fund programming supported by PEF including school music, physical education, library and STEM programs, safe school counselors, academic and career counselors, and teacher salaries.

In addition to STP, other performers include Gary Wright (“Dream Weaver”), Yutong (Pacific Symphony, LA Phil, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra), Chas West (Bonham, Foreigner), Marten Andersson (Lizzy Borden, George Lynch), Monte Pittman (Madonna, Solo Artist), Stan Sharp (Long Beach Symphony, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra) and Jane Lee (accomplished pianist).

After teaming up with STP in 2013, Bennington announced his departure from the lineup last fall as he struggled to juggle his work with the group alongside his Linkin Park and personal obligations.

Earlier this month, Stone Temple Pilots opened up online auditions for a new singer.
