Bright Eyes Line Up One-Off Orchestral Show

Bright Eyes Line Up One-Off Orchestral Show

[b]Bright Eyes[/b] are set to play a one-off show accompanied by the [b]Los Angeles Philharmonic[/b] this weekend (September 29).

The show, to be held at the [b]Hollywood Bowl[/b], will apparently feature reworked versions of songs from [b]Bright Eyes[/b]' entire career, in contrast to the group's recent shows, which have featured tracks mainly drawn from their recent albums [b]"Cassadaga"[/b] and [b]"I’m Wide Awake It's Morning"[/b].

Band member [b]Nate Walcott[/b] worked out the arrangements for the orchestra, which comprises 40 string, 11 brass and 12 woodwind players. The arrangements reportedly took eight months to complete, according to [b]Billboard[/b].

"In some cases I would take existing melodies or parts, and score them for a full orchestra," [b]Walcott[/b] explained. "In other cases, I composed whole new elements - melodies, harmonies, whatever."

[b]Bright Eyes[/b] have no plans as yet to repeat the show anywhere else in the US or UK.
