Hip Hop Orchestra Experience

May 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

What IS the Hip-Hop Orchestra Experience?

Part concert, part dance party, and part club night, with explosive original music that samples from classical and hip-hop, the Hip-Hop Orchestra Experience starts with the seminal works of Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven, then builds something completely NEW.

Featuring members of Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra (SEISO) alongside San Francisco’s Ensemble Mik Nawooj, the music uniquely pushes the boundaries of both hip-hop and concert music, with resident MCs, a lyric soprano, turf dancer, woodwinds, french horn, strings, piano, and drums.

The result is a seamless tête-à-tête with “textures swimming through the sound…like the world’s fastest ping-pong game” (Pitchfork) and is considered the “cutting edge of hip-hop” (Huffington Post).

Tickets: $21-43

Note: This performance may include strong language; those with sensitivities please be advised.
