Event description

Description

Beethoven + Kanye West = Yeethoven. Two eras, one radical spirit. The musical mash-up that no one expected, but critics and audiences raved about, is back. As with the original 2016 Yeethoven concert in L.A. by the Young Musician Foundation’s Debut Chamber Orchestra (DCO), developed by DCO conductor Yuga Cohler and composer-arranger Johan, the performances will feature works by Beethoven and West juxtaposed, developed, varied and spliced together by a full orchestra. Cohler will again conduct.

Kanye West’s critically acclaimed album Yeezus (2013) marked a dramatic turn for the musical artist. Abandoning the verse-chorus format found in his previous albums, West created a new sound that was more reminiscent of symphonic music — with a complex, constantly evolving trajectory. He developed this approach further in his subsequent album, The Life of Pablo (2016).

“If West’s dramatic and formal language evokes any orchestral composer’s work, it is Beethoven,” Cohler said. “Like West, Beethoven was controversial in his era. He wrought havoc on existing compositional forms, alienated many, and changed the course of musical history.”

Yeethoven II builds on its predecessor concert by incorporating several tracks from The Life of Pablo. Plus, the concert will also feature a set by acclaimed producer MNDSGN with special guests Joyce Wrice and Kay Franklin. Beldina will open the show.

General admission tickets are $35 in advance; $50 the day of the concert.

VIP tickets, $250, include a pre-concert private reception (6 p.m.), meet-the-artist opportunities, hosted bar and VIP seating. Proceeds benefit the Young Musicians Foundation.

Doors open at 7 p.m.
