Members of Arcade Fire come to Aarhus Festival

Two members of Canadian indie giants Arcade Fire visit Aarhus Festival with their ensemble Bell Orchestre to join forces with Aarhus Symphony Orchestra.

Richard Reed Parry and Sarah Neufeld from Arcade Fire are both members of Bell Orchestre, the ensemble consisting of a total of six musicians, who can be found in this year’s programme at Aarhus Festival.

Alongside Aarhus Symphony Orchestra they will perform new music from their coming album ‘House Music’, which will be their first new release in 10 years. The songs are arranged for orchestra by fellow Canadian Owen Pallett, renowned composer and artist.

The concert will unite more traditional classical sounds with Stravinsky’s ‘The Firebird’ followed by the playful and curious tones from Bell Orchestre. Audience are in for a musical treat that celebrates music and highlights the best of both worlds and what can happen when you put them together.

Date/time: Saturday 1 August 7.30 pm
Venue: Concert Hall Aarhus
Tickets: DKK 90-160 available from 9 May
Arranged by: Aarhus Festival in collaboration with Aarhus Symphony Orchestra and Kampnagel International Summer Festival
