Soulful Symphony with Darin Atwater features an acclaimed African-American orchestra's genre-defying original compositions and arrangements of popular tunes. The 85-member Soulful Symphony ensemble, led by founder and artistic director Darin Atwater, performs "Song in a Strange Land," Atwater's powerful anthem to the African-American spirit. Recorded in high-definition, the program delivers an exciting concert experience — from soothing strings to the power of the gospel choir, and from blazing brass to the pulse and fire of a rhythm section. Atwater — a composer, conductor and pianist — is regarded as one of the leading artists of his generation. His skills in classical, jazz and sacred music have earned him a distinguished international reputation and his innovative compositions and arrangements of classical music serve to reach a broader, more diverse audience.
