The ARC Orchestra joins hip hop orchestra, EMN in the world premiere of JooWan Kim's Concerto for Trombone and MC. ARC Orchestra Director, Steven Thompson will be the featured soloist.
You heard that right. Hip hop. Rap. Trombone.
The program also includes all the EMN tracks orchestrated for full symphony orchestra and MC.
Led by composer/pianist, JooWan Kim, EMN creates Meta Music by sampling principles of Hip-Hop and Classical. Executed with MC/lyricist Sandman, a lyric soprano, flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, drums and bass, the music is rigorous, nuanced, and accessible.
“Hip hop is the new great American art music and Ensemble Mik Nawooj is on the cutting edge of it.” Huffington Post
