Saturday 27 January
Gates open at 6:30pm
Harvey Sutherland 7:45 PM – 8:30 PM
Armand Van Helden 9:00 PM – 10:30 PM
Iconic house producer meets the MSO at Sidney Myer Music Bowl for one night only.
House music legend Armand Van Helden and the MSO will join forces on stage, heralding the inaugural Symphonica concert, marking the New York electronic music icon’s first appearance on Australian shores for seven years. After 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 classics along the way. He is simply one of the most pivotal figures in dance music ever.
Armand Van Helden and MSO’s 70-piece orchestra will breathe new life into his long list of house classics, 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 classics that Armand has to his name.
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.
