SOLD OUT! Whitworth University Presents: Leslie Odom, Jr. with the Spokane Symphony
This Event is Sold Out!
Whitworth University, in partnership with the Spokane Symphony, welcomes award-winning vocalist, songwriter, actor and author Leslie Odom, Jr. for Whitworth’s fall President’s Leadership Forum Concert. Odom will be performing two sets with the Spokane Symphony under the direction of Music Director and Conductor James Lowe.
Odom received two Academy Award nominations this year for the movie One Night in Miami. He was nominated for best supporting actor for his role as legendary singer Sam Cooke and received a nod for writing, composing and performing the film’s original song, Speak Now. Odom was also nominated for a BAFTA, Critics Choice, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award for the same performance.
Odom is perhaps best known for his role as Aaron Burr in the highly acclaimed Broadway musical Hamilton, for which he won a Tony Award in 2016.
