The Centre International de Deauville will be opening its doors to the general public on Friday 5 January 2024 for the first Normandy concert in “The Symphonic Pop-Rock Show” by TuXedo.
A concert retracing 4 decades of musical hits by the likes of David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Sia in a symphonic version: 20 tracks selected for this exceptional evening !
The Symphonic Pop-Rock Show” project is born
Born over 20 years ago, TuXedo, which means “evening wear” in American English, is a music group made up of 6 musicians and 2 technicians, known throughout the region for their various concerts, private parties and corporate events.
For this group of friends with a shared passion who started out as students, putting together a concert combining a symphonic ensemble and a pop/rock band was a childhood dream. The absence of any professional activity during the Covid period enabled the group to start work on this project !
So they teamed up with the Erato symphony orchestra from Caen, made up of around fifty musicians (conservatoire teachers and top amateur musicians) to create the concert project “The Symphonic Pop-Rock Show”.
Together, they performed for the first time on 17 November in Metz in front of 700 spectators, aged between 20 and 60. It was a successful performance, and one that left the audience wanting more.
An unusual combination of 2 worlds
The songs performed are from the pop and rock repertoires, carefully chosen by TUXEDO to vary the styles and offer a whole palette of musical colours.
Through the association of the music group with the symphony orchestra, very different worlds are brought together and harmonised, allowing the different protagonists to work on new styles of music, and so open up the field of possibilities.
For the audience, it’s a real musical discovery, allowing them to rediscover the greatest pop-rock hits through the prism of symphonic music.
The first performance at the CID
The concert, which will last over 1h30, will be performed for the first time at the Centre International de Deauville on Friday 5 January 2024 at 8pm in the Michel d’Ornano auditorium. The event is supported by Daniel FÉAU Deauville and the media Actu.fr, France 3 Normandie and France Bleu Normandie.
