With less than one month until Symphonix Rock Orchestra make their live debut, the thirty-strong orchestra are gearing up for what is set to be a show unlike any other. On Friday 26th August, an orchestra of world class musicians will swap traditionally classical music for a sensational symposium of the world’s most loved rock songs. Guests will be invited to experience some of the most well-known rock classics in a way like never before, all on the stage of Glasgow’s iconic Barrowland Ballroom.
Born from the imagination of founder and Musical Director, Neil Thompson, Symphonix combines his love for rock and orchestral sounds in the ultimate celebration of live music. It’s the latest offering from the director, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and performer whose Musichoir contemporary show choir has performed in every major venue across Scotland, from the Hydro in Glasgow to the Usher Hall in Edinburgh. From playing across the world in Dubai, Thailand and Europe with folk-rock band Bahookie to making his Orchestra Director debut at the Barrowland Ballroom with Symphonix, Neil’s passion for live music is unbound.
Neil Thompson, Symphonix Director, said: “I’m thrilled that after 2 years in the making there’s less than one month to go until Symphonix’ debut performance. With thirty of the country’s most amazing musicians and singers ready to rock on the stage of Glasgow’s legendary Barrowlands, this really is a night not to be missed.”
Unearthing the raw power of rock with thirty musicians on stage, Symphonix will showcase one of the greatest rock catalogues of all time. An orchestra, complete with strings, brass, vocalists, rock band and choreographed choir will breathe new life into a range of hits from the likes of Metallica, AC/DC, Coldplay, Toto, Prince, Nirvana, Muse and more. The most electrifying rock anthems of all time will be honoured in one unforgettable evening. With violinists head-banging to Led Zeppelin and a phenomenal brass section rocking out to Rage Against The Machine, this will be the ultimate celebration of live music.
In a one of a kind event, Symphonix invites Glasgow to go on an incendiary musical journey for one night only – Friday 26 August 2022.
