Ministry of Sound’s Orchestrated rearranges, remixes and reimagines classic dance tracks with a live symphony orchestra and special guest vocalists for a night of pure celebration.
The Strings of Life Tour this December sees guest vocalists Sam Sparro, Crystal Waters, Alison Limerick and DJ Groove Terminator join some of Australia’s finest orchestras to perform classic dance hits from Fatboy Slim, Moby, Eric Prydz, Robert Miles and more.
Grammy and ARIA Award-nominated singer, songwriter and producer, Sam Sparro – the unique voice behind the multi-platinum single “Black and Gold” has collaborated with Mark Ronson, Kylie Minogue, Aluna George, Basement Jaxx, Nile Rodgers, Adam Lambert and Honey Dijon amongst others and recently wrapped up a hugely successful national tour.
Alison Limerick returns to Orchestrated following a standout performance earlier in the year at the Sydney Opera House. Limerick released debut album And Still I Rise in March 1992, that same year won Best Female Artist at the international DMC Awards and has released a string of hit singles since, including “Time Of Our Lives” and “Where Love Lives” the 90s phenomenon and global anthem.
Limerick continues to record and sing live and can be found singing soul/jazz in various venues across Europe. Her latest collaboration Bye Bye with New York DJ Lenny Fontana is out now and includes a Phats & Small remix.
Best known for 1991’s “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)” and 1994’s “100% Pure Love”, Crystal Waters makes for an exciting addition to the line-up. Her accolades include three American Music Award nominations, an MTV Video Music Award nod, four Billboard Music Awards and six ASCAP Songwriter Awards.
Musical director Adam Sofo and creative director Groove Terminator return for all Australian shows joined on the Gold Coast by acclaimed conductor Guy Noble and legendary Brisbane DJ Harry K.
“Being part of Ministry of Sound: Orchestrated is a dream come true. I’ve grown up with these anthems and the whole dance music movement that Ministry of Sound championed,” Harry said.
In a nostalgic throwback to some of the greatest party anthems of all time, Orchestrated will generate serious foot movement bringing friends together to relive the heady days of clubbing in a celebration of dance music – a night to remember from start to end as it makes its way across the country.
Orchestrated is coming to HOTA Gold Coast, with The Ministry of Sound Orchestra Presented by SeaFM. For details and tickets visit the HOTA website.
