Orchestra Noir is unlike anything you'd probably experienced.
The all-black orchestra, directed by maestro Jason Ikeem Rodgers, has been making some noise within the music scene lately. Recently, they appeared alongside fellow ATLiens Migos and 2 Chainz in the music video for "Deadz". Now, they're hosting their own show that you won't want to miss. “It is with great pride that I announce our new concert will be held in our new home Center Stage Atlanta,” Rodgers says. The black-tie event will take place at Center Stage Atlanta March 31. Details are slowly emerging but it's said that guests will also enjoy a "soiree" before the event with a DJ and a red carpet to walk on. That's a major move for a group of passionate-yet-humble musicians.
Orchestra Noir was founded in 2016 by Rodgers with the mission to "showcase and celebrate the black community's rich cultural achievements in music through concert events in Atlanta". Rodgers, who possesses multiple degrees in the art of conducting, hopes to grow their fanbase with their show at Center Stage and awakens the masses on the power of classical music.
The city has definitely embraced the idea of the collective, featuring them in local publications and showcasing their talents on multiple levels in various avenues. Can't wait to see their growth!
