Leslie Odom Jr. of Hamilton fame—he’s Aaron Burr, sir—is coming to Powell Hall to perform with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
The Tony Award- and Grammy Award-winning actor and vocalist shot to superstardom for his portrayal of Aaron Burr with the original cast of the blockbuster musical phenomenon Hamilton.
His one-night only performance at Powell Hall is on Sunday, Dec. 3, at 7pm.
Odom’s debut solo album, “Leslie Odom Jr.,” was released in June 2016 on S-Curve Records and quickly rose to No. 1 on the Billboard and iTunes Jazz charts. The multifaceted performer has also compiled an impressive list of television and film acting credits.
