The first man on the moon, Woodstock, President Nixon, The Beatles’ Abbey Road, John and Yoko’s Bed In, the Cold War …1969 was a year when the world was entering a new era, all to the soundtrack of some of the most seminal and radical rock and pop music.
In this special celebratory event, the worlds of rock and classical music collide as the inspiring Willoughby Symphony Orchestra joins forces with rock band 1969 to take you on a unique journey through music’s golden year.
Immerse yourself in an atmosphere of peace and harmony as you experience classics like Elvis Presley’s Suspicious Minds, Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline and David Bowie’s Space Oddity brought to life by a full scale orchestra, rock band and a wall of vocal harmonies. In true Vivid Sydney style The Concourse’s magnificent concert hall will also light up with images from the era.
Rock out to a selection of favourites by The Beatles, Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones, Pinball Wizard by The Who and Proud Mary by Creedence Clearwater Revival. And the evening wouldn’t be complete without the positive vibes of Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In from Hair, perfectly capturing the optimism of the era.
Conducted by international conductor George Ellis, Willoughby Symphony Orchestra is widely celebrated for electrifying performances and innovative musical presentation styles. Its musicians include many of Sydney’s most versatile and experienced professionals who unite to produce compelling performances.
