Rogers, Kilbey, Conway, Adalita To Perform Bowie With Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Amanda Pelman has put together some amazing talent including Tim Rogers, Steve Kilbey, Deborah Conway and Adalita with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra to pay tribute to David Bowie in May.

The event, to take play at the Sydney Opera House, will also feature singer/songwriter Jack Ladder.

Pelman cites Lorde’s stunning Bowie BRIT Awards tribute as the benchmark for the shows. “If the SSO and the artists are taking anything as a yardstick, it will be Lorde’s performance at the recent Brit Awards,” she says Pelman. “One of the things I’m keen to stay away from is not presenting it chronologically or by musical structure. The most important thing to me is how Bowie’s canon can be portrayed with real integrity and nuance by the orchestra and artists with a sympathetic voice to the work.”

The diversity of the artists chosen is testament to the broad range of musical genres Bowie excelled at.

Amanda has asked the performers to submit their personal favourite Bowie songs for the show to portray their private emotions to their performance. “All of the performers bar one had come up with a song that I hadn’t considered putting in the show,” she says. “The 30 songs are both the highest selling songs and some of the most quirky performances.”

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by Benjamin Northey.

David Bowie ‘Nothing Has Changed’ will be at the Sydney Opera House on May 19 and 21.
