Join us for Hip-Hop Orchestra at the Tobin - A Family Event.
When was the last time you witnessed an orchestral ensemble of up to 20 pieces at a Hip-Hop concert? Well, that is but a fraction of what you will get when you catch Thee Phantom and the Illharmonic Orchestra in action. Picture B-Boy meets Beethoven. If you're searching for something that will wow you then look no further.
Thee Phantom wrote his first rhyme at the age of 8 and made his first beat by mixing the instrumental from the Beastie Boys’ Paul Revere with Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony at age 12. It's ironic considering that the particular movement of Beethoven's 5th he chose is entitled, "Destiny", because little did he know, that his combination of B-Boy Meets Beethoven would later open up a world of opportunities for him. Most notably, in 2002 Phantom became the first Hip-Hop artist to perform at Philadelphia’s prestigious Kimmel Center with musical accompaniment from members of the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.
Thee Phantom combines the energy and passion of Hip Hop with the beautiful sweeping sounds of live orchestration.
