SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED Aretha Franklin & Stevie Wonder reimagined

After the success of their sold out Unplugged: Nirvana Reimagined show Perth Symphony Orchestra are joining forces with the WAAPA Gospel Choir for Signed, Sealed, Delivered which will celebrate the music of Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder at The Astor Theatre on Thursday, May 31. 

Aretha Franklin is set to release her final album next year, which has been produced by Stevie Wonder, so what better way to celebrate than by rearranging and adding strings to some of their most popular songs.

Expect expressive arrangements as Perth Symphony strings, rhythm section and horns replace the traditional ‘band’ using strings as the foundation, with original charts written by WA award winner Johannes Luebbers and conducted by the PSO’s own Jessica Gethin (pictured).

Signed, Sealed, Delivered: The Music of Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin, performed by the Perth Symphony Orchestra and WAAPA Gospel Choir takes place Thursday, May 31 at The Astor Theatre.
