Darin Atwater reigns as maestro over his own orchestra, the Soulful Symphony, a
75-member ensemble with several vocalists. In 2000, Atwater started conducting the orchestra, which developed a hip-hop symphony while also playing tunes from Motown, Jazz and Gospel. The season kicks off on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at the Hippodrome’s France Merrick Theatre in Baltimore City.
