Back in 2016, Los Angeles’ Debut Orchestra of the Young Musicians Foundation launched a concert series, “The Great Music Series.” For its first concert they blended the music of Kanye West with Ludwig van Beethoven, naming it “Yeethoven.”
Thanks to its success “Yeethoven” will return for another go-round at the top of 2018. This time, the Foundation will reinterpret music from Kanye’s 2016 album The Life Of Pablo with Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 8.”
A preview, which features the orchestra rehearsing “Waves,” can be seen below. Those in New York can catch “Yeethoven II” on January 18th, 2018 at the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. Tickets are available now.
