The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience by recreating classic albums in a live performance setting with a first class lighting and video production. 

 A selected album is performed in its entirety by a group of hand-picked musicians specifically selected for each album. With no sonic detail being overlooked, the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album. Following the album and a brief intermission, the Black Jacket Symphony returns to the stage to perform a collection of greatest hits by the evening's artist.

Event Details

The Black Jacket Symphony announces a special performance to honor one of the greatest musicians of our time - Prince. More than an artist, he was a legend. His music transcended boundaries that nobody knew existed. While he has left this earth, his music comes alive again thanks to the world-class musicians of Black Jacket Symphony who will recreate "Purple Rain" in its entirety - plus a full set of Prince's greatest hits after intermission. 

Guests are still encouraged to dress in their favorite 80s attire, however, the planned costume contest has been suspended at this time.
