6 works by Beethoven
6 works by Kanye West
Orchestrated, Juxtaposed, Developed, Varied and Spliced together
All performed live by a 70 piece orchestra
Created by Yuga Cohler and Stephen Feigenbaum
Saturday April 16th, at the Aratani Theatre, Los Angeles, Yuga Cohler and Stephen Feigenbaum come together to show the audience, no matter what genre, no matter what century, great music will always be great music and it knows no limits.
The program is part of the Great Music Series hosted by the Young Musicians Foundation. “Yeethoven” aims to point out the commonalities between Beethoven and Kanye West, two seemingly different artists working within very different traditions yet when mashed up and played together there is almost no distinction; showing musical genius can cross both genres and centuries.
The Great Music Series: Yeethoven is on April 16 at the Aratani Theatre, 244 S. San Pedro St., Los Angeles. Admission is free and on a first come-first served basis. Box office opens at 6 p.m.; performance begins at 7:30 p.m.
