On August 16, 2018, the world lost one of the most inspired artists of all time, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. In honor of her life and contribution, Queens of Soul will include a special musical and video tribute in all of our concerts as part of the upcoming season.
An evening featuring hits made famous by the reigning divas of Soul and R&B: Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, Nina Simone, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Hudson, Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys and Adele.
Queens of Soul is a co-production of Schirmer Theatrical, LLC and Greenberg Artists. This production includes all arrangements, three vocalists, and two rhythm section musicians. An optional projection design featuring stunning, licensed imagery of the soulful songstresses is available, and a Technical Rider is available upon request.

Orchestras are encouraged to stream Schirmer Theatrical’s curated playlist of music in the style of Queens of Soul, in the house or lobby, 30-minutes prior to the start of the concert.
