"Chakalaka!" as Ellis Hall loves to say! This accomplished and prolific entertainer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with a five-octave range, headlines the CSO's Pops orchestra for an evening of soul-searing rhythm & blues. Hits like "I Heard it Through the Grapevine", "Signed, Sealed, Delivered", "Soul Man", and "Unchain My Heart", conducted by Yuriy Bekker, Principal Pops Conductor.
In a career spanning over four decades, Hall has electrified audiences throughout the world. Hall attended the Perkins School for the Blind in Boston where he mastered the bass, guitar, keyboards, piano, and drums. He was a protege of Ray Charles and has worked with some of the world's most well known conductors, including Marvin Hamlisch, Bob Bernhardt, William Eddins, Keith Lockhart, Jeff Tyzik, and Steve Reineke of the New York Philharmonic.
