SYMPHONY OF OUR WORLD


January 5, 2019

Experience the wonder first-hand at the Civic Coliseum on January 5th, 2019 at 8:00PM.

Tony- and Grammy-award winner Daveed Diggs will narrate, as a contributing artist, the upcoming National Geographic: Symphony for Our World, which begins touring in April 2018. The actor, rapper and producer, known for his award-winning work in the musical Hamilton, is bringing a modern take on the classics to the symphony scene with this new show.

The original symphony and theme were created by Emmy- and BAFTA-nominated Bleeding Fingers Music featuring composers Austin Fray and Andrew Christie with contributions from multi-platinum selling rockers X Ambassadors. Along with Diggs, JooWan Kim of Ensemble Mik Nawooj has joined the project, composing the music for the show's narrations and overture.

This inspiring 90-minute live orchestral performance will be presented in concert venues around the world, with groundbreaking imagery and storytelling from 130 years of beloved National Geographic history matched in perfect synchronization with a live orchestra and choir.

The tour's first performance is in conjunction with the television broadcast premiere of 'Symphony for Our World', an hour-long special which airs commercial-free on the same day on Nat Geo WILD. The 'Symphony for Our World' television event will premiere globally in 140 countries.

Driven by a five-part composition, Symphony for Our World pairs artistry with science as it brings viewers from the depths of the sea, up to coastlines, over mountains and soaring into the sky. Each environment will be accompanied by a different orchestral movement, resulting in a powerful musical tribute to the beauty and wonders of our wild world.

Located at Knoxville Civic Auditorium and Coliseum

Sat, Jan 5 - 8pm
