Red Bull Symphonic
From the venue:
Red Bull is excited to announce the US debut of Red Bull Symphonic: an unprecedented collaboration of hip-hop and classical symphony that brings audiences a larger-than-life celebration of music, heritage, and community. Taking place in the cultural mecca of Atlanta, the event will deliver live stunning orchestral renditions from the repertoire of multi-platinum superstar and rap legend Rick Ross, alongside AtlantaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s award-winning all-Black symphony, Orchestra Noir, with an intermission featuring acclaimed favorites SAINTED and Mapy.
Merging classic with contemporary, Red Bull Symphonic is a groundbreaking spectacle that brings together today's most exciting and influential artists with a full-scale symphonic orchestraÃ¢â‚¬â€paying homage to the heritage of hip-hop through an original live format. The event will open with Orchestra NoirÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s astonishing 50-person orchestra led by conductor Jason Ikeem Rodgers, followed by an intermission act that will feature SAINTED, a musical group and trap choir party founded by DJ Fannie Mae and Grammy award-winner Dennis Reed, that curates immersive events which pay homage to the southern Black church through trap, soul, old school funk, gospel, and new age hip-hop. The audience will also experience the artistry of award-winning violinist Mapy, fittingly nicknamed the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Violin Queen,Ã¢â‚¬Â who turned heads as she performed at the 2021 Grammy Awards and seamlessly melds the warm, rich tone of the violin with high-energy hip-hop, soca, and reggae beats
