Get some Girl Power in your life when Perth Symphony Orchestra presents a Girls Night Out, a celebration of music by power women through history at The Astor Theatre on Thursday, May 30. It’s the latest in their ‘The Music Of…’ series, which has previously seen them celebrate Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and George Michael.
Featuring fully orchestrated versions of Beyoncé, Tina Turner, Madonna, Adele, Franklin, Nina Simone and so many more like you’ve never heard them before, Girls Night Out is a celebration of women, by women, for everyone.
It should come as no surprise that Perth Symphony is behind this event. An organisation created and run by women, from Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Jessica Gethin to Founder and CEO Bourby Webster, PSO knows a thing or two about inspirational ladies.
But Girls Night Out takes even their usual focus on talented women up a notch. For starters, ALL of the charts, arrangements and compositions are written by local women.
Plus ALL of the instruments on the night, from strings right through to drums and bass, will be performed by what they believe is the first entirely female orchestra ever in Perth. Led by conductor Jessica Gethin, and vocalists Rose Parker and Sophie Foster, plus a whole cast still to be announced, you will likely never have seen this many incredible women in the one place before.
With many emotion-charged stories emerging as part of the #metoo and #timesup movements, celebrating women’s achievements is equally important. So many of the world’s greatest role models over the past century have been singers and musicians, and Girls Night Out is about keeping celebration and inspiration in focus as a part of that conversation.
Girls Night Out by Perth Symphony Orchestra is on Thursday, May 30 at The Astor Theatre. Tickets on sale this Thursday HERE.
