Three-time Grammy Awards winner and R&B and soul veteran Maxwell is upgrading his talents to symphony.
Maxwell recently announced plans for his orchestral debut this fall. The soul master and his long standing band will act jointly with the National Symphony Orchestra and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for the grand-scale performances tagged A Night at The Symphony.
The event will feature Maxwell’s impressive vitae of number one hits, including “Sumthin’, Sumthin’” and “Pretty Wings.” Each song will be re-arranged in symphonic form for each evening.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think that what started when I was 16 years old would take me to such a prestigious experience, to be on stage with two of the best orchestras around,” Maxwell said in a statement.
The show will begin its three-night residency on September 18 at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. He will perform a one-night concert at the Cadence Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park in Atlanta on September 27.
Fans can purchase their tickets now at either location.
Maxwell plan to release the final installment of his blacksummers’NIGHT trilogy later this year.
