Canton Symphony Orchestra Announces Divergent Sounds – Hip-Hop Meets the Symphony

Canton Symphony Orchestra will host the next installment of their Divergent Sounds series, Hip-Hop Meets the Symphony featuring Floco Torres on March 12th, 2020 at 7:30pm.  Discover the new sound of two different genres when they morph into a spectacularly new musical experience.

Floco (pronounced Flock-o) Torres knows a thing or two about starting over. Twenty-three projects deep into his career as a solo recording artist, he has envisioned and reimagined his creative expression countless times and with this adaptive style, he has gained a steady following for his hip-hop-meets-alternative rock sound.

Canton Symphony Orchestra also announces the relaunch of their Divergent Sounds Series Recording Project. The goal of this project is to raise funds to produce a professional recording featuring Canton Symphony Orchestra instrumentalists and seven of the bands featured in the series. Previously hosted on Kickstarter, the goal of $11,000 was not met and none of the $3,524 raised was able to be kept. The new crowdsourced fundraiser will be hosted on GoFundMe so that all funds can be collected even if the goal is not met. For the new campaign, Henry Gulich has generously offered to match up to $1,000 in contributions. To donate, please visit
