It's not so unusual. There are lots of cover bands that perform rock 'n roll with orchestras these days. We've seen a few and they're tremendous. <pause to search> Wow! Someone recorded and posted the very concert we attended, with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra! Not the best recording, but in person, it sounded better
Watch for the electric violin.
We caught this on a concert channel recently. Not sure if David Bowie is your style, Addie, but we loved the 360° orchestra and choir Beck played his music with at Lincoln Center. The orchestra leader is the singer, Beck's, father.
