New York electronic music DJ Armand Van Helden, returns to Australia for a once in a lifetime experience with Frontier Touring, The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) and Arts Centre Melbourne.
Rising to prominence in the mid ‘90s, Armand Van Helden has dominated club culture and the airwaves for more than two decades, blessing the scene with countless anthems along the way. He is simply one of the most pivotal figures in dance music ever.
This Australia Day long weekend at Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Saturday 27 January 2018, the one night only show at the inaugural Symphonica concert is going to be epic.
Armand Van Helden and MSO’s 70-piece orchestra will breathe new life into his long list of house anthems, including the likes of ‘U Don’t Know Me’, ‘My My My’, ‘Bonkers (feat. Dizzee Rascal)’, ‘I Want Your Soul’, his legendary remix of Tori Amos’ ‘Professional Widow’ and certified bangers as part of Duck Sauce including ‘Barbra Streisand’. This is not even touching on the dozen odd underground club anthems that Armand has to his name. It’s set to be a remarkable evening.
MSO’s Associate Conductor Benjamin Northey will be at the helm leading a full orchestra of musicians through the dance tracks, curated especially for Symphonica by Australian arrangers Jamie Messenger and Joe Twist.
Melbourne futurist trio Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda will feature alongside a 15-piece MSO ensemble, performing new and classic material from Sutherland’s catalogue of ‘lounge room dance floor burners’. Scored and arranged by violinist Tamil Rogeon, Bermuda will deliver a cinematic disco experience in the spirit of Isaac Hayes or the Love Unlimited Orchestra.
Don’t miss out on this very special summer evening under the stars featuring internationally renowned producer, Armand Van Helden joined by the incredible MSO. One night only.
