David Bowie: Nothing Has Changed

For three nights, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra pay homage to one of the world’s greatest musician

By Benjamen Judd

In 2016, the world lost one of its most revolutionary musicians: David Bowie. Provocateur, visionary and, above all, artist David Bowie was – is – one of the most influential performers of the modern era. 

To celebrate Bowie’s legacy, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra – joined by iOTA, Deborah Conway, Adalita and more – will be performing an arrangement of Bowie’s greatest hits at the Sydney Opera House, starting May 19 and finishing May 21. 

The performances will include iconic tracks such as ‘Changes’, ‘China Girl’, ‘Life on Mars’, ‘Under Pressure’, ‘Let's Dance’, ‘Starman’ plus an array of more obscure numbers.

Whether it was gender, fashion or musical styles, Bowie didn’t just break the rules. He rendered them redundant, inspiring generations to come to always push the boundaries. 

Conducted by Benjamin Northey, this is a unique opportunity to experience the music of a truly groundbreaking artist. 

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra will perform ‘David Bowie: Nothing has Changed’ at the Sydney Opera House on May 19 until May 21.
