THERION To Perform With Symphonic Orchestra In Romania

Sweden's THERION has posted the following message on its official web site:

"At the Palace Hall in Bucharest, Romania on December 9th, THERION [will] play with [a] full symphonic orchestra, choir and international opera stars. The band will go on stage with nearly 70 musicians of the Academic Radio Choir, 100 instrumentists of the Romanian Radio Orchestra and guest classical singers from Vienna, awarded as best opera voices worldwide. Markus Stollenwerk, who joined the famous German band RAGE for their 'Lingua Mortis' album will be the conductor of this world-premiere event. The repertoire [will] include famous classical pieces [performed] in THERION [style], as well as THERION songs with symphonic orchestra, some of them never played live before. The project is done with kind support of the Swedish Embassy in Romania.

"[The] 'Therion Goes Classic' concert is part of a project called 'Ars musicae, ars medicinae – music against cancer' developed by Aquarius Foundation [of] Romania; all thanks for the initiative go to THERION. Funds raised [by] the concert [will benefit] the treatment of children with cancer in Romania in 2007."
