    What happens when you cross woodwinds, strings and piano with Hip Hop? Thee Phantom and the Illarmonic Orchestra.

    What happens when you cross woodwinds, strings and piano with Hip Hop? Thee Phantom and the Illarmonic Orchestra.

    Add to that a soul songstress, a crowd-controlling DJ, and a fire-breathing MC and that is still but a fraction of what you’ll get when you catch Thee Phantom & The Illharmonic Orchestra in action. Thee Phantom combines the raw energy and passion of Hip-Hop with the beautiful, sweeping melodies of live orchestration. 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. Ironic considering that the movement of Beethoven’s 5th is entitled, “Destiny”. Little did he know, Phantom’s combination of B-Boy meets Beethoven would later open up a world of opportunities for him. Come celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop with this one-of-a-kind event at the Long Center on August 12th.
