CNN Featured Story: "Hip-Hop meets Classical"

SMKA x Aleon Craft x The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra


The unique collaboration was a featured story on CNN: Friday, Febuary 12th @ 12:45pm.

This is a special collaboration between Hip-Hop and Classical music that is the first of its kind. According to the governing symphony organization, this is the first collaboration of its kind.  The collaboration was a result of ASO's Concerts for Young People, a series of programs that focus on integrating the arts into school curriculum with concerts performed by full orchestra.  The ASO commissioned Atlanta-based SMKA Productions to create a song that sampled classical music. The piece was performed for a full audience by the ASO and Aleon Craft at the Atlanta Symphony Hall 18 times between October-Febuary 2010.
