The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is enterting the Wu-Tang in March.
The DSO will collaborate with the legendary hip-hop troupe Wu-Tang Clan on March 21 at Orchestra Hall. The night includes a screening of the martial arts film "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin" with the score played live by the DSO, conducted by Enrico Lopez-Yanez of the Nashville Symphony, and a performance by Wu-Tang Clan of its debut album, "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)" in its entirety.
The group previously played "Enter the Wu-Tang" shows during the 2018 Movement electronic festival in Hart Plaza and last summer at the Michigan Lotter Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit the DSO's educational and artistic programs.
In a statement, Wu-Tang leader RZA says that the collaboration "is a great example of the bandwith that hip-hop has and how its community stretches across the landscape of music. Wu-Tang Clan has alays made our music cinematic, and operatic in the context of production and lyricism. The opportunity to elevate our sound with the sonic backdrop of an orchestra like the DSO is historic and monumental."
Tickets for the concert are $60-$218 and go on sale at 11 a.m. Feb. 20, with a limited VIP presale on Feb. 19. 313-576-5111 or dso.org.
