Rapper Nas will perform with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra as a culmination of Detroit Pistons Black History Month festivities on March 5. Tickets may be purchased starting Saturday, January 26.
Proceeds will benefit programs that stem from the Detroit Pistons partnership with the DSO and Sphinx Organization, which provides opportunities to young African-American and Latino string players to develop and showcase their talents in the communities they serve.
Nas will perform his debut album “Illmatic” by giving the music a classical treatment with the accompaniment of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
Last year, the Detroit Pistons and DSO announced a multi-year partnership aimed to enhance music and education programming for Detroit youth. Funding will also allow all Detroit Public School Community District fourth graders to attend DSO educational performances for free through subsidized tickets.
