Performed by the ORCHESTRE SURREAL


Featuring The Fabulous Miss Thing & Dangerous Dan O'Callaghan







Conducted by Elvis Schoenberg




Mission Statement:

To provide a modern-day psychedelic music appreciation course, in the form of a

 performance, by cleverly and playfully combining classic rock songs with classical music, jazz, and film music.  While breaking the barriers of the standard orchestra experience with costumes, stage antics, and unexpected twists and turns, giving the audience an entertaining experience of the music they know in a completely new way. 

The subtext being that...

Elvis Schoenberg's Orchestre Surreal is now booking engagements for clubs, festivals and concert stages. With the maestro's lead vocalists and some of the industry's most sought-after musicians, this eclectic orchestral hybrid project can be augmented with performance artists, magicians, dancers, acrobats, and more, depending on the nature of the event.

The strings all have pickups and they sub-mix through a 12-channel board, 

sending a stereo signal to the house.

If 7 direct boxes are available, 

each player can go directly through the board.




Thanks!  The Orchestre Surreal looks forward to terrorizing your neighborhood.



The Orchestre Surreal is a unique live orchestral experience, rather than
simply a classical concert.  Comprised of some of Los Angeles' top musicians,
the orchestra tackles the great compositions of the titans of classical music
with a wry, satirical point of view.   With Ross Wright leading the way as his
alter-ego persona "Elvis Schoenberg," nothing is off limits. 
The show takes psychedelic sidebars with its singers,
electric guitars, and even a Theremin(!) 
Part concert, part spectacle, and part just plain fun, you will
never experience a music concert quite like that of
The Orchestre Surreal.
