Culture Club - Culture Club To Play Orchestral Show With Bbc Philharmonic

Reformed 1980s band Culture Club are swapping pop for classical music by teaming up with the Bbc Philharmonic orchestra for a reimagining of their classic album Colour By Numbers.

The Karma Chameleon hitmakers are among the musicians taking part in the upcoming Bbc Philharmonic Presents... series of concerts aimed at broadening the appeal of orchestral music.

They will take part in a classical rendition of their chart-topping 1983 album at the concert next month (Sep14), and the performance will be broadcast on Bbc radio.

The corporation's director of music Bob Shennan says the new season will showcase a wide range of music, adding, "There will be something for everyone."

Other stars taking part in the 2014 Bbc Philharmonic Presents... event include U.S. musician John Grant and British band Clean Bandit.
