GIRLS NIGHT OUT
“A celebration of music by power women through history”
by Perth Symphony Orchestra
The Astor Theatre
Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31, 2019
*Second show announced for Friday, May 31, 2019!*
*More talent announced!*
What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than with the news that due to overwhelming popular demand, a second Girls Night Out show on Friday, May 31 has been announced at The Astor Theatre in Mount Lawley. Sisters are doing it for themselves!
Pairing Perth Symphony Orchestra with WA’s foremost powerhouse singers, we are also excited to announce even more additions to the talent on display. Joining already-announced, world respected conductor Jessica Gethin, plus the incredible voices of Rose Parker and Sophie Foster, welcome soul sister and star of Hot Brown Honey, Odette Mercy of Odette Mercy and Her Soul Atomics.
Plus, another woman who has proven a hit on stages both musical and theatrical, Lucy Peach joins Girls Night Out. A folk singer who isn’t afraid to tackle the big issues, Peach has just enjoyed another successful season with her groundbreaking show My Greatest Period Ever.
Plus ALL of the charts, arrangements and compositions are written by local women, with the incredible talents of Kathy Potter, Cara Fesjian, Stephanie Nicholls and Rebecca Erin Smith confirmed to write the scores.
In addition we are excited to announce even more powerhouse voices with Alana Fay, Chelsea Cullen and Mia Matthiessen joining the 25-strong orchestra and lead singers as backing vocalists for the shows.
Plus ALL of the instruments on the night, from strings right through to drums and bass, will be performed by what we believe is the first entirely female orchestra ever in Perth. You will likely never have seen this many incredible women in one place before!
Featuring fully orchestrated versions of Beyoncé, Tina Turner, Madonna, Adele, Aretha 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. And 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.
Girls Night Out takes even their usual focus on talented women up a notch.
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.
At PSO, we couldn’t be better placed with so many incredible women working in, for and around the orchestra.
Not to mention the generations of women that will be celebrated in the show, an incredible history so varied and huge that Perth Symphony aims for Girls Night Out to become an annual concert.
