Grammy Award-winning rapper and songwriter Nas will perform with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra March 5 as part of Detroit Pistons Black History Month programming at Orchestra Hall. 

Proceeds from the 7:30 p.m. concert will benefit programs that stem from the partnership the Pistons have with the DSO and the Sphinx Organization. 

Nas is expected to perform a classical music version of his 1994 debut album “Illmatic.” He performed a similar concert a few years ago with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the album’s 20th anniversary.

Tickets, $65-$150, go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday via or by calling (800) 745-3000.
