The trendsetting orchestra kicks off their concert season with glamorous black-tie gala event on September 16th

ATLANTA, September 14, 2017 – Orchestra Noir, the trendsetting orchestra that took Atlanta by storm with their
historic 2016 season, is hosting their highly anticipated season opening event “Gala at the Ritz-Carlton” at the
Ritz-Carlton Atlanta on September 16, 2017. This event will be an extraordinary night of class, high art, and
elegance as Maestro Jason Ikeem Rodgers leads the orchestra through a magical evening of classic orchestral and
operatic masterpieces as they celebrate the first concert of the season in grand fashion! Orchestra Noir’s previous
red carpet events have been known to bring out Atlanta’s who’s who, and this event is poised to up the ante even

Major brands, such as formal wear giant Men’s Wearhouse, have taken notice of the orchestra’s stylish and luxury
driven branding and demographic which has resulted in a partnership for the upcoming gala. “This event aligns
with our [Men’s Wearhouse] core values. “ Men’s Wearhouse District Formalwear Manager, Jerome Tobler, states.
“It is a win – win opportunity for both partners.”

Radio personality and Weekday Host of the Georgia Lottery Mid-Day Drawing, Rene Miller, will serve as the
evening’s official Mistress of Ceremonies. Gala guests will get to showcase their stunning fashions as they walk
the red carpet during the pre-concert soireé before making their way into the Ritz’s breathtaking Grand
Ballroom. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to fight homelessness in
Atlanta, a cause that is a passion of Maestro Rodgers. “I am beyond excited to bring the new season of Orchestra
Noir to Atlanta,” Rodgers, CEO and Music Director, says. “The response from our first season was overwhelming,
and I can’t wait to share what we have in store for the second season’s opening gala,” he continues.

Orchestra Noir has gained critical and commercial acclaim this past year by attracting Atlanta’s trendsetting and
fashion-forward community and successfully fusing classical music with pop culture. Their groundbreaking first
season culminated with a sold-out performance featuring nine time Grammy Award winning superstar producer,
Bryan-Michael Cox, this past March. Orchestra Noir was founded in 2016 and has been covered in Rolling Out
Magazine, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Tom Joyner Morning Show, CBS Radio, NPR, Upscale Magazine, Atlanta
Black Star, and many other prominent publications. Orchestra Noir has also gained celebrity fans such as renowned
