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.
After first hitting up Brisbane in 2019, the event is coming to Sydney on Friday, October 8. It'll see a 60-plus piece orchestra join forces with a selection of DJs and live performers at the Qudos Bank Arena, 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 Miss Connie (Sneaky Sound System) and Ilan Kidron (Potbelleez), as well as Emily Williams, Ella Monnery, Greg Gould, Mobin Master, Andy Van (Madison Avenue/Vicious Records) and Mark Dynamix — and The Metropolitan Orchestra, of course.
Tickets go on sale at 10am AEST on Thursday, June 17.
