Red Bull is launching its very first symphonic concert in the U.S. this fall. The event will bring artists together with world-renowned orchestras to create reimagined renditions of their work. Kicking off the inaugural event is the biggest boss Rick Ross, who’ll be teaming up with Orchestra Noir, an Atlanta-based, all-Black symphony that’s previously worked with Cardi B2 ChainzMigos and T.I.

The rapper, per Red Bull, will work with the group’s musical director, Jason Ikeem Rodgers, to reinterpret some of his biggest hits and newer songs. The new versions will be performed by the 50-person choir and special guest musicians from Georgia State University and other historically Black colleges and universities. Ross assures it will be a moment to remember.

“From The Biggest Boss I’m going to make sure I give y’all an unforgettable and one night only performance,”  he said in a statement. “Red Bull Symphonic is helping us celebrate heritage, musicians, and more importantly Black excellence. We gonna innovate big that night.”

The U.S. debut of the Red Bull Symphonic is scheduled for November 4 in Atlanta, Georgia. Hip-hop/soca/afrobeat violinist Mapy and musical group/trap choir party SAINTED will also take the stage.
