The Houston Symphony will celebrate the massive pop music contributions of Prince at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 15, with a performance of his iconic and eclectic smash hits, complete with a full rock band and lead vocalist.
The orchestra will be joined by guest conductor Brent Havens, a Berklee-trained arranger and conductor who has written music for orchestras, films and TV, vocalist Marshall Charloff, front man for The Purple Xperience, and the same band that brought The Music of Led Zeppelin and The Music of Queen to audiences across the country.
Charloff will bring the groundbreaking artist’s greatest hits to life by imaginatively styling the magic of Prince’s talent with his appearance, vocal imitation and multi-instrumental prowess on guitar, piano, bass and drums. He is a celebrated producer and recording artist and has performed on many stages across the U.S.
The concert will take place at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, 615 Louisiana Street, in Houston’s Theater District.
