Resurrection Mixtape at Phoenix Symphony Hall

Join us at Phoenix Symphony Hall for the Resurrection Mixtape. This groundbreaking musical event merges classical with hip-hop and is organized by the Phoenix Symphony.  Conductor and Music visionary Steve Hackman conducts this innovative performance. It comes just one week after the Phoenix Symphony’s rendition of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection.”

Resurrection Mixtape ingeniously fuses Mahler’s monumental symphony excerpts with iconic rap tracks by Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur. This unique blend forms a transformative exploration of life, death, legacy, struggle, and triumph. Featuring rap classics such as Biggie’s “Juicy,” “Hypnotize,” and “Who Shot Ya,” alongside Tupac’s “Changes,” “Ghetto Gospel,” and “California Love,” the performance creates thematically linked mashups. Above all, these tracks are known for their profound narratives on hard roads, ravaged communities, and the realities of gangster life. They seamlessly intertwine with Mahler’s powerful classical compositions.

As Mahler’s symphony ascends to its triumphant climax, the Resurrection Mixtape also celebrates the enduring legacies of these iconic rappers. Twenty-five years after their deaths, Biggie and Tupac’s influence remains as relevant and essential as ever. Their influence echoes through generations and across musical genres.

This event is more than a concert—it’s a cultural dialogue that bridges diverse musical styles and audiences. The Resurrection Mixtape promises to be a poignant reminder of music’s power to reflect and reshape our understanding of life’s most profound themes.

Don’t miss this extraordinary fusion of classical and hip-hop music at the Phoenix Symphony Hall. Experience the powerful and profound Resurrection Mixtape, where the legacies of Mahler, Biggie, and Tupac converge in a musical celebration of life, death, and triumph.
