Let's talk BIG band!

Not quite the way you'd picture an Orchestra

We all have a certain image in mind when we picture an orchestra. Perhaps you visualize a group of musicians seated across a very large stage wearing black tie formal attire. Chances are then, you don't imagine the sounds of popular artists like Daft Punk, Erykah Badu or Hip-hop juggernaut Dr Dre. 

What if I told you that we have had an orchestra of 20 musicians touring across Canada performing a variety of shows catered to specific genres as an orchestral rendition. You may have to see it to believe it! Each city from Montreal right across to Vancouver have had fans out in record numbers of 800+ and selling out each venue to see the likes of the tribute orchestra. With a core group of 12 musicians traveling from Toronto we source 8 additional string and horn players in each city to create the epic, Alternative Symphony, a show also being toured across Australia. 

The response to this band has been tremendous as we take concert goers through a 90 minute show honoring each artist of genre. Our musical directors have carefully crafted each show to be a one of a kind musical experience of the highest calibre. 

Take a look at footage from previous shows below.
