Conductor: Hamish McKeich
Modern soul meets live orchestra
Singer-songwriter Louis Baker will fuse his own brand of modern soul with the symphonic power of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra for a one-off show at Auckland Town Hall as part of APO’s Session Series.
Baker will perform a selection of his current and new music, including hits ‘Rainbow’ and ‘The People’ in a relaxed acoustic concert experience. Composer and arranger Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper has been working alongside Baker to reimagine his music into lush orchestral arrangements.
Louis Baker has independently built up over 20 million Spotify streams and gathered a loyal global following. He has sold out previous shows in New Zealand and performed on the European festival circuit as well as opening for international artists such as Fat Freddys’ Drop, Allen Stone, Jordan Rakei and Morcheba.
Doors open at 8pm. The APO will take the stage around 8.45pm with a short programme of orchestral music. Louis Baker will then join the orchestra on stage, after the interval, conducted by Hamish McKeich.
