Orchestra Noir: The Atlanta African-American Orchestra


Orchestra Noir was founded in 2016 by Maestro Jason Ikeem Rodgers. Through orchestral performance, Orchestra Noir aims to celebrate the cultural achievements of African-American music pioneers across all genres of music, including Classical, Hip-Hop and R&B. Orchestra Noir has witnessed a meteoric rise to be one of the most talked about orchestras in the nation, as it continues to successfully bring orchestral music to diverse, younger audiences in grand and spectacular fashion.

90s Vibes: The Best of Hip-Hop and R&B promises to showcase what Rodgers’s mission has always been: to celebrate the cultural achievements of African American pioneers across all genres of music.
