Synthony Australia 2022
A 60-plus piece orchestra performs 30 years of dance floor bangers.
Dance and classical aren't music genres you'd usually find swirling around in the same basket — unless you have a particular bent for the orchestral 'Sandstorm' covers found in the depths of YouTube. Synthony — A Generation of Dance Music is here to prove that the disciplines go hand in hand.
Touring Australia since 2019, the event is returning to Melbourne on Friday, February 18. It'll see a 60-plus piece orchestra join forces with a selection of DJs and live performers at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, all to play the biggest dance tracks of the last 30 years.
Expect the venue to take a few cues from the nightclub scene, with lights, lasers and mapped video all part of the experience — and a selection of dance floor bangers note-for-note.
The lineup includes live performances from Savage, Emily Williams, Mobin Master and more — and The Synthony Orchestra, of course — with Madison Avenue's Andy Van on hosting duties.
