An Evening with Ledisi
Darin Atwater, conductor
with the Mellow Tones

American R&B and jazz recording artist Ledisi joins the NSO Pops for two inspired evenings spotlighting her unique sound and "amazing vocal gift" (Rolling Stone) led by conductor Darin Atwater. Nominated for nine Grammy Awards and a mainstay on Billboard's R&B charts, the prolific New Orleans native artfully channels gospel, blues, and funk influences with style, navigating intimate ballads and up-tempo grooves with ease. For the first half of the program, the NSO is joined by The Mellow Tones, an ensemble from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts.


Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, including one 15-minute intermission.
