Tim Minchin vs The Orchestras

Get ready to rumble as heavyweight comedy rock star Tim Minchin takes on Australia’s Symphony Orchestras for a pull no punches, modern day clash of the musical titans.

Tim Minchin Versus The Orchestras will include brand new material from the barefooted piano-basher, alongside those much loved Minchin classics as they were always meant to be heard: epically arranged for Australia’s best symphony orchestras.

Tim said: “Deep down I’ve always believed I deserved to have a symphony orchestra poised 24/7 to respond to my every musical whim. This is merely a step in the right direction.”

Keeping the orchestra on the same page will be leading Australian conductor Benjamin Northey, In 2003 Northey made his professional debut conducting the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra with Beethoven Symphony No 6. He made his European debut in 2005 with the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg and participated in masterclasses with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Israel’s Haifa Symphony Orchestra. Returning to reside in Melbourne in 2006, Northey has rapidly become one of the country’s most versatile musical stars and is in constant demand as a guest conductor of all Australian state orchestras.
