Revolutionary musician Prince Rogers Nelson, better known as Prince, was a musician who redefined the boundaries of music genres. A master of pop, funk, R&B, folk-rock, hip-hop, jazz, soul, new wave, and psychedelic, Prince created music that resonated with the world. Your Colorado Symphony is joined by a live band in a symphonic tribute to the cultural icon, performing “Raspberry Beret,” “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Kiss,” and more. 2016 was a year that claimed dozens of influential artists who gave us the music that defined an era. Help us celebrate the life and legacy of one of the greats.
