The Black Jacket Symphony Performs Prince's Purple Rain May 3

Monday, February 03, 2014

The Black Jacket Symphony will perform Prince's Purple Rain on Saturday, May 3, 8 p.m. at the Tivoli Theatre. 

The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience through recreating classic albums in a live performance setting. A selected album is performed in its entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for each album, with no sonic detail being overlooked--the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album, said officials.

The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features the album being recreated as a true symphonic piece. The second set, which features a selection of the album artist's "greatest hits," opens in full contrast to the first set with a light display and the symphony being much more laid back. The tone is set very quickly that the show will feature the high level of musicianship of the act being covered and will also be accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show, said officials.

Tickets are $30 and $25 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.  They may be purchased at chattanoogaonstage.com, by phone at 642-TIXS or at the Memorial Auditorium Box Office.
