Popular alternative rock band joins forces with MSO

Birds of Tokyo, one of Australia's most successful contemporary rock bands, joins forces with the MSO this June!

Conductor Vanessa Scammel will lead the five piece band and the MSO in an evening that will showcase reinterpretations of some of their best-known songs, as well as exciting new music, including their latest hit single "Two Of Us".

Conductor and arranger Nicholas Buc, best known for his concert collaborations with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, has worked with the band on the arrangements and orchestration.

This is the second time in the band's career that they have performed with orchestration. Birds of Tokyo's guitarist/songwriter Adam Spark noted "We've wanted to do this ever since we collaborated with much smaller ensembles on our Broken Strings tour a decade ago... It's daunting to be playing with such gifted musicians but it's also a privilege so we really want to make the most of this opportunity."

Don't miss this very special concert event.

Birds of Tokyo in Concert with the MSO will be held at Arts Centre Melbourne, Hamer Hall.

  • Wednesday 3 June 2020 at 8:30pm
