The Queen of Motown, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, and lead singer of The Supremes, DIANA ROSS has enjoyed a remarkable career that includes hit singles such as “Endless Love,” “I’m Coming Out,” “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” and “Stop! In the Name of Love.” She is one of the most iconic female singers of all time and was named “Female Entertainer of the Century” by Billboard magazine. DIANA ROSS’ musical repertoire encompasses R&B, soul, pop, disco and jazz. Her phenomenal success in the United States and UK has garnered more hits than any female artist in the charts, with a career total of 70 hit singles as a solo artist and with The Supremes.
Singer-songwriter Rhonda Ross is an international social-artist, who explores the social environment around her and her relationship to it – questioning constructions of race, gender, sexuality and spirituality through her lyrics. Her original music lives in the gap between jazz, funk and gospel while her lyrics delve into some of life’s biggest questions and answers. Rhonda’s music flows straight from her essence and her bright spirit uplifts everyone in the room.
THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: SYMPHONY OF THE GODDESSES
Celebrating 30 years of stirring virtual adventure and memorable soundtracks with live orchestral renditions directly approved by franchise producer Eiji Aonuma, THE SYMPHONY OF THE GODDESSES is now in its fourth season. The two-hour concert comes to life with a 66-piece orchestra, 24-person choir, and a reimagined score that draws from recent and requested Zelda games, includingA Link Between Worlds, Twilight Princess, and the remake of Majora’s Mask, while still paying homage to such classics as Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past. The concert’s five-movement symphony regales ears with Nintendo composer Koji Kondo’s original music, recalling moments of Link conquering dungeons, running through forests, and struggling to decide what color tunic to wear. Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.
“We’re really going all-out this year to celebrate the new Nintendo Switch release,” said Jason Michael Paul, President of Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc., the company producing the concert tour. “Besides all the new show content, we’re also bringing back the Ballad of the Wind Fish from the original program, which has been a big request from fans for a while.”
The concert is a festive experience for all fans, many of which attend in “cosplay” as their favorite characters. For more information, please visit http://zelda-symphony.com.
