In a surreal twist, one of Japan's biggest rock stars also happens to be one of that country's most revered classical composers. His name is Yoshiki and the breadth of his musical accomplishment astonishes. The same man who, as the leader of the heavy metal band X Japan, sold out the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times was selected by the Japanese government to write a classical composition celebrating Emperor Akihito. Commissioned to write themes for events as diverse as the 2012 Grammys and the World Expo, he has now released a solo album of original instrumental works, Yoshiki Classical, to global acclaim. For one night only, he will perform captivating melodies from his new album live at Davies Symphony Hall, playing solo piano with string quartet accompaniment. Learn More

I loved it and hope they come back next year! The kids were extremely talented and Walt (the director/originator of the group) couldn't have been more enthusiatic, engaging with the audience and full of talent himself! I have already told my friends with hopes that we could all go next year.
Walt Whitman and the Soul Children of Chicago perform in A Gospel Christmas. This program of spirituals, gospel songs, and holiday music, sung by this inspiring youth choir from Chicago which has entertained audiences here and abroad for over two decades, promises to raise the roof and bring crowds to their feet.
