Synthony is a 100% NZ production that's attracting new audiences to orchestral performance.

The unique concept is a melding of electronic dance music and hip-hop with the sound of a full symphony orchestra and an immersive light, laser and visual spectacle; it consistently plays to sell-out shows.
