About this Event

To celebrate the November 8th release of Sound the Bells, her groundbreaking live record with the Minnesota Orchestra, Dessa will present a limited run of special performances. For these events, she’ll combine elements of her touring show (backed by a live band, MONAKR) with orchestral arrangements performed by a string quartet. The evening will combine literary hip hop, infectious pop compositions, virtuosic musicianship, and live storytelling.
