Over six decades into her career, Chicagoan and vocal legend Mavis Staples continues to define and embolden the genres of gospel, soul, R&B, blues, rock, hip hop, pop and folk. This unstoppable, trailblazing voice comes to Symphony Center for one night only to celebrate her new album Livin’ on a High Note and showcase her illustrious career. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear this living luminary live and experience her “earthy, still-agile voice” (Rolling Stone) and “quiet yet fierce gospel spirit” (NPR). 

Mavis Staples was named a Kennedy Center Honoree on Dec. 4.

 

Note: Due to speaker placement for this event, patrons in the Terrace will not experience the same high quality of sound as in other areas of Orchestra Hall.
