Following three sold-out performances in New Zealand, Synthony made its Australian debut last night in Brisbane. The promoters warned “Leave your nan at home, this is not an orchestra as you know it” and they were bang on.
Synthony was conducted by Peter Thomas and was a unique collaboration between the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra, vocalists, feature musicians and DJ’s to perform the biggest dance floor bangers of the last 30 years.
The iconic Brisbane City Hall transformed into a visually spectacular and pumping underground nightclub complete with lasers, smoke machines, mapped videos and state of the art sound to create an epic experience like no other. The venue heaved with an amped-up and nostalgic 2500 strong crowd. Glow sticks were fired, drinks were charged and rave dance moves were plenty. Each track produced roof-raising cheers of recognition and took the audience on an immersive trip down memory lane.
The Brisbane show was hosted by Mobin Master and had guest appearances by Ilan Kidron from the Potbelleez, Jenny B the voice on Corona’s ‘Rhythm of the Night’, Nastasha, Cherie Mathieson and saxophonist Lewis McCallum.
The Australian debut was without a doubt an overwhelming success and Synthony most certainly lived up to the hype. If Synthony heads back to Brisbane in 2020 mark this one in your calendar. You will not be disappointed.
