Rick Ross and Red Bull Symphonic have announced a special concert at the Atlanta Symphony Hall that will see the rapper perform with an all-Black orchestra.
The concert marks the U.S. debut of Red Bull’s Symphonic series, with Rozay set to deliver some of his biggest hits with the backing of Orchestra Noir. Offering up a fresh take on his discography, the 50-person orchestra is led by conductor Jason Ikeem Rodgers. Alongside Ross’ performance, there will be an intermission from SAINTED and award-winning violinist Mapy. The show will take place on November 4.
“From The Biggest Boss I’m going to make sure I give y’all an unforgettable and one night only performance,” said Rick Ross in a press release. “Red Bull Symphonic is helping us celebrate heritage, musicians, and more importantly Black excellence. We gonna innovate big that night.” Considering the luxurious sound Ross typically goes for with his beats, the concert sounds like a perfect match for his music.
“Orchestra Noir is a magnificent representation of the unparalleled musical talent Atlanta has to offer,” added Orchestra Noir conductor and music director Jason Ikeem Rodgers. “We celebrate the artistic achievements of Black music pioneers across all genres, bringing sounds of the symphony to diverse, new and young audiences - and are thrilled to be able to collaborate and perform with Rick Ross to continue uplifting these outstanding musicians.”
