Megadeath frontman Dave Mustaine is planning to perform more classical music in the future after hailing his one-off turn with the San Diego Symphony orchestra a success.

The heavy rocker joined forces with the group in San Diego, California on Saturday night to perform Symphony Interrupted, which included a number of classical masterpieces including concertos from Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” and Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.”

After the show at Copley Symphony Hall, Mustaine admitted he still has a lot to learn, but is keen to perform more classical shows.

In a post on his Facebook.com page, he writes, “I sooo (sic) badly want to say thank you for being here at the first Symphony Interrupted. To all the fans that were not able to attend, don’t worry, there will be another SI and this being the first and all, we have already started to plan on how to make it even more enjoyable… (The show) was an experiment; a challenge that I was up for… We did not record the show because we knew I was going to be still getting used to this whole thing, that I would have a little getting used to this new environment… I want everyone to hear this venture with everything just right… For the next Symphony Interrupted, as Frank Sinatra said, ‘The best is yet to come!'”
