Last year, Serj Tankian, along with New Zealand's Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra performed a symphonic version of his 2008 release, Elect The Dead. Instead of just having an orchestra back up his songs, Tankian reworked his material for the use of orchestral instruments, alone, and titled the project Elect The Dead Symphony. This performance was captured for a CD/DVD release that will be availiable this March. Before that, Elect The Dead Symphony, will see a small theatrical release in February and early March. Screening dates and information on CD/DVD are posted after the jump.
