Kendrick Lamar will perform with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C..
The NSO Pops will host Lamar in playing selections off his latest album To Pimp a Butterfly on Oct. 20 at the Kennedy Center at 8 p.m. The album features fan favorites like “Alright” and “King Kunta,” but expect him to perform songs we haven’t heard live yet.
Lamar will appear with an orchestra conducted by Steven Reineke. Reineke is in his fifth year as Principal Pops Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra. He’s known for leading performances by Nas, Seth MacFarlane and more.
While tickets made available today are already sold-out, fans can still try to purchase them on Sept. 30 at the Kennedy Center’s website starting at 10 a.m.
