As a part of their Great Music Series the Youth Musician Foundation is bridging the gap between Kanye West and Ludwig van Beethoven.
“The purpose of the Great Music Series is to explore the commonalities between the music of our times and classical masterpieces of the past,” the YMF says on their website.
“By highlighting the musical and cultural elements characteristic of all great music, the Series seeks to demonstrate that modern popular music is fundamentally similar to classical music. For its first installment, the series will compare Kanye West and Ludwig van Beethoven.”
The concert will be played by a 70-piece orchestra, thru will perform the works of Kanye West and Beethoven as well as blending the two artists’ work together.
This unique Kanye and Beethoven mashup will take place on April 16 at the Aratani Theatre in Los Angeles. Admission is absolutely free and you can check out a sneak peek below.
