A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop featuring Nelly
With Members of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra
Grammy-winning rapper, singer and songwriter Nelly arrives with this one-of-a-kind concert experience—a genre-busting event that lends a symphonic twist to his greatest hits, including “Hot in Herre,” “Just a Dream” and “Country Grammar.”
Though his albums have sold more than 21 million copies in the United States alone, you’ve never before heard Nelly's music quite like this! When he debuted A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop last summer, backed by his six-piece band as well as the Columbus Symphony, music critic Lynn Green of The Columbus Dispatch wrote that the event was “a surprise winner.”
“Combining [hip hop and symphonic music] is a bold move,” she wrote. “But does it actually work? The answer is yes. Nelly's songs and delivery are so catchy, they hold their own against a stage full of musicians … [this fusion] definitely has the potential to draw these genres of music, and their audiences, closer together.”
Previous engagements of A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop featuring Nelly in Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Columbus sold out quickly, so be sure to get your tickets early!
