Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Performs the Music of David Bowie: A Musical Odyssey
Thursday June 2, 2016 08:00 PM EDT
From the venue:Symphonic tributes and rock performances are nothing new. But when the honoree is as prolific and influential as the late David Bowie, itâ€™s going to be a whirlwind of musical styles. Bowieâ€™s vast catalog is marked by everything from his slightly demented folksinger tunes such as â€œThe Laughing Gnomeâ€ to the ambient music of Heroes and Low, and the disco and soul of Diamond Dogs. His work was groundbreaking, but not always commercially accessible. What the ASO does with all of this is anyoneâ€™s guess, but in their talented hands itâ€™s sure to be an inspiring homage to the Thin White Duke.
