Eurythmics Reimagined takes on a unique chronological format. Playing the spunky new wave synth-pop Lennox of the early 80s will be Irish non-binary vocalist Freddie Mai. Making waves in 2019 with the jazz/soul outfit Bass Lemon, Mai grew up in Fremantle. Renowned for their soulful vocals and powerful presence, Freddie has become a mainstay in the Perth scene. Since the dissolution of Bass Lemon, Freddie focuses purely on writing new music and producing their own solo project.
Sabrina Davies brings with her one of Perth’s biggest voices as well as history of singing Annie Lennox. While she’s best known for her wildly successful ‘P!nked’ and Lady Gaga shows, she grew up a child of the 80s on influences like Kate Bush, Eurythmics and divas Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston. When tomorrow finally comes, we can’t imagine a better singer to own that iconic blonde crop and bring the Miracle of Love, Thorn in My Side, Would I Lie to You and so many of the biggest hits of the mid-80s to life.
Ali Bodycoat is well regarded as one of Western Australia’s most respected vocalists. She has established herself as an unrivalled force in the local music and artistic industry – a constant on the West Australian jazz fest scene, Ali returns regularly to the Perth International Jazz Festival, Jazz by the Bay and has performed in over six Fringe festivals, winning Best WA Cabaret for her original show, Minor Major Marlene in 2017, amongst many other Fringe awards. Ali has performed for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Gala at the iconic Melbourne Town Hall in October 2018 and was guest vocalist at the Perth Festival 2020 launch.
We would like to thank Concert Partner, Wright Burt Foundation and Government Partners, Lotterywest and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
As always, a special thanks also to Foundation Partner AHG and Sustainability Partners Minderoo Foundation and Tim Roberts Giving.

We perform music from Mozart to Metallica, Björk to Beethoven and everything in between. Our mission is ‘Music for Everyone’ and by taking the orchestra out of the concert hall and into communities across WA, we are proud to have performed to over 250,000 people so far.
