Presenting Symphonica: Armand Van Helden with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra – A once in a lifetime experience this Australia Day long weekend at Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
The New York electronic music icon makes his 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.
“One of house music’s most important figures.” – Resident Advisor
“For over 20 years, Armand Van Helden has been on the cutting edge of dance music, both breaking down walls between genres and accidentally opening up new ones in the process.” – Rolling Stone
“Few dance producers in any style have had the changeability and staying power of Armand Van Helden.” – Red Bull
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.
