The Young Musicians Foundation (YMF) has put together an amazing new mash-up concert featuring music from Kanye West and classical German composer Ludwig Van Beethoven. Yes, THAT Beethoven!

YMF says via their website:

“The purpose of the Great Music Series is to explore the commonalities between the music of our times and classical masterpieces of the past. By highlighting the musical and cultural elements characteristic of all great music, the Series seeks to demonstrate that modern popular music is fundamentally similar to classical music. For its first installment, the series will compare Kanye West and Ludwig van Beethoven.”

The concert will be played by a 70-piece orchestra, and will feature 6 works by Beethoven, and 6 works from Kanye‘s Yeezus album. This iconic event will take place at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center in Los Angeles on Saturday April 16.
