Maxwell to perform his first-ever orchestra-backed show this fall

Shore Fire Media

Maxwell will be breathing new life into his live musical performances, with a string of symphonic shows this fall.

Fittingly titled A Night at the Symphony, the pioneering artist is set to be joined by the world class National Symphony Orchestra and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, respectively, for a three-night residency at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. September 18, 19 and 20.  He'll also play a one-night show at the Cadence Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park in Atlanta on September 27.

Maxwell will perform re-imagined orchestral versions of songs from his hit-filled career, ranging from “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder)” and “Sumthin’ Sumthin',” to “Pretty Wings” and the recent “Lake by the Ocean.” 

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think that what started when I was 16 years old would take me to such a prestigious experience, to be on stage with two of the best orchestras around," Maxwell said of the upcoming performances. "It’s my greatest joy to announce that I will be playing songs from my catalogue which I’m re-arranging for your symphonic pleasure."

Maxwell will also take the stage with his creative partner Hod David and other members of his longtime band.

You can purchase tickets for the Kennedy Center performances on the concert hall's dedicated website, and via the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra's ticket portal for the Cadence Bank Amphitheater date.
