Steven Reineke, conductorWhat would the classics sound like with a Hip Hop beat? How about as a mashup with some cool rockin’ rhythms? Find out when the NSO reunites with Grammy®-nominated beatboxer and multi-instrumentalist Christylez Bacon and wildly original electric cellist/composer Wytold for a crash course in the fundamentals of remixing! Through beatboxing, improvising, and other creative techniques, these D.C. favorites take Pachelbel’s Canon and Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1—plus other classical masterpieces featured everywhere from movies to TV to weddings—and make them completely their own.
