Harlan T. Bobo and the Memphis Symphony Orchestra at the Hi-Tone Café

Three disparate musical H's — (George) Handel, (Jimi) Hendrix, and Harlan (T. Bobo) — come together at the Hi-Tone Café this week as part of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra's "Opus One" program, a musician-generated, conductor-free concert series that brings the orchestra to nontraditional venues. For this roughly two-hour program, the full orchestra will cram into the main room of Midtown rock mainstay the Hi-Tone. The program begins with a performance of Handel's Royal Fireworks Suite, followed by interpretations of the music of Jimi Hendrix. Local ace songwriter Bobo will join the orchestra for a concluding set of seven of his songs, arranged by MSO cellist and frequent Bobo collaborator Jonathan Kirkscey. The MSO and Bobo will perform this program at 7:30 p.m. at the Hi-Tone on Thursday, November 11th, and again on Friday, November 12th. Bobo and his band will perform a regular rock show later Friday night as something of an after-party. Admission is $25 for the symphony performances, $7 for Bobo's late-Friday show.
