Symphony Of Angels – Thank You

                April 12th, 2019

                The Angels - Symphony Of Angels - Sydney Opera House - 4th April - 2019

                There is nothing more glorious than the joy of music being passed from one generation to the next.

                The Angels walk on stage to Hooper Brewster-Jones’ overture from ‘Australia Felix‘. Hooper’s grandsons, John and Rick, nod at each other. John then looks at his son, Sam, on bass, and smiles. Three generations of Brewsters making music. Full circle. A dream come true. The power of music.

                Forty-five years after they formed – “45 years better,” one fan remarks – the power of The Angels is undiminished. The Brewster Brothers’ incomparable guitar interplay, the rumbling rhythm section of Sam Brewster and Nick Norton, and the manic energy of frontman Dave Gleeson, a potent mix of menace and mirth. Then there’s the conductor, Rob John, who speaks both languages – classical and rock.

                There are moving tributes to bandmates who are no longer with us. ‘Love Takes Care Of Its Own‘ – ‘I Just Want To Be With You‘.

                Classic rock, classical music. Seemingly, a clash of cultures. In the end, this is a communal experience. Many members of the crowd have brought their children. Some are seeing The Angels for the very first time.

                There’s an orchestra on stage. And a choir. The choir members smile as every member of the crowd joins them: “No way, get f#cked, f#ck off!” The chant. A rallying cry. An Aussie mating call.

                This is family, a Symphony of Angels.

                Radio Interview & Ensemble Performance – 6pm Thu 7th

                March 5th, 2019

                Symphony Of Angels - Special Radio Interview & Ensemble Performance - 6pm 7th Mar - ABC Radio SydneyRichard Glover will be interviewing the Brewsters this Thursday 7th March at 6pm on his ‘Drive‘ radio show on Sydney ABC radio.

                ?As a special treat there will be a live ensemble performance including the addition of a violinist and also Brewster family friend, cellist Sally Schinkel-Brown.

                The show ‘Symphony Of Angels‘ draws a bow right back to the Brewsters long family involvement with orchestral music through their father and their uncle.

                In fact Viv Schenkel, mother of cellist Sally Schinkel-Brown, was known to accompany John & Rick’s father on piano when he himself performed on the cello.

                Closing this musical loop even further is the fact that cellist Sally Schinkel-Brown is also a great friend to the conductor of ‘Symphony Of Angels‘ – Mr Rob John.

                All in all, these ever entwining musical collaborations, along with the blood ties of the Brewsters themselves, serve only to deepen the musical experience enjoyed by all during ‘Symphony Of Angels‘.

                The year 2019 marks another auspicious occasion for The Angels, the 40th anniversary of their third album ‘No Exit‘. The album, which spawned classic hits such as the title track No Exit and the still beloved show-stoppers Shadow Boxer and Mr Damage, peaked at No. 8 in the charts.

                The special thing about the tour is that there are no supports – it is just The Angels, full on, recharged for the entire show.

                We will be doing two sets over the whole evening, the first set will be the No Exit album in its entirety and the second set is a mix of classic Angels songs and a few rarities.” says John Brewster.
