Serj Tankian To Perform w/ Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and Film It For DVD Release
While down under for his appearance at the Big Day Out festival (and solo shows with Fantomas), Serj Tankian will be performing a one-off show with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. The show will take place on Monday, March 16, 2009 at the Auckland Town Hall and they will be performing songs from Tankian's solo debut "Elect The Dead" and "some unreleased extras."
Serj comments further: "All the songs will be reinterpreted to fit with the orchestra, as the F.C.C. will not be playing this show with me. It’s just the orchestra and I; the arrangements for the orchestra were made by respected New Zealand composer John Psathas."
"I'm elated to have the opportunity to arrange my songs from Elect the Dead for a full orchestra with the APO. The arrangements will be quite different than those on the record including bonus tracks never played live, and John Psathas will be helping me outfit my string arrangements for the full orchestra. We'll also be taping the performance for a worldwide DVD release later in the year. Yes for real, we will be putting this out on DVD."
