Featuring members of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and former Stax and Royal Studios musicians; moderated by John Bass and Allie Johnson, Rhodes College.
Stax Records and other Memphis studios – American, Ardent, and Royal – worked closely with not just pop, rock, R&B, and soul musicians, but Memphis musicians of another stripe – the classically trained strings, brass, and woodwinds of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra.
Highlights of the performance include Isaac Hayes' “Theme from Shaft” and other Stax hits by the MSO String Quartet. Join us for a lively discussion about the relationship between MSO and studios in town, some great stories about Isaac Hayes and other Stax artists.
