Dr. Dre, the music and business giant turned 50 this past February. Over the past 30 years, "The Doctor" has been a pivotal force in music as his blend of sounds has merged worlds many thought would never mesh.
Hip-Hop has truly become a way of life for many people across the globe. The culture knows no bounds. Due to the work of Dr. Dre, hip-hop is apart of American history. It seems fitting that the year should end with a 30-piece orchestra playing his music at home. That's right the doctor is getting the orchestra treatment in California.
The unique concert is produced by two LA-based organizations: the Playing For Change Foundation (PFCF), a non-profit dedicated to creating a positive change in the world through music and arts education, and Mochilla, a production company with a long history in the LA underground.
“Dre's music represents a core aspect of LA culture,” Fraser explains, “and, in a sense, it mythologises the process of a creative inner city youth.”
This seems like a great idea that should be well executed. Hopefully we get a recap of the concert soon.
