Ledisi Sings Nina 

July 22 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$20

On July 22, Ledisi, the New Orleans-born and Oakland-raised singer, and The Philadelphia Orchestra pay tribute to the legendary Nina Simone with a live performance of the album Ledisi Sings Nina.

Ledisi Sings Nina balances upbeat, big-band energy with atmospheric balladry, and an attention to historic detail that succeeds in updating the music for a modern hip-hop/R&B era. With the prowess of Ledisi’s voice, the artistry of The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the messages of Simone’s music, this performance is sure to speak to a generation facing the same harsh challenges and bitter struggles of the 1960s.

Ledisi Sings Nina, the singer’s tenth album, caps more than a year of impressive achievement, including: a GRAMMY® for Best Traditional R&B Performance, her first PBS TV special, Ledisi Live: A Tribute to Nina Simone, a role on HBO’s Between the World and Me, the release of her album Wild Card, and the release of her second book, Don’t Ever Lose Your Walk: How To Embrace Your Journey. Ledisi’s path forward promises to be as varied stylistically and format-wise as ever.

Get $20 off your ticket now through July 16 with promo code SAVE20.
