$1.1 million raised for scientific research at Symphony at Salk
The evening concert showcased the multifaceted talents of Odom, Jr., which won him both the 2016 Tony Award for Lead Actor in a Musical for his role as Aaron Burr in Hamilton, as well as a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album as a principal soloist for Hamilton’s Original Broadway Cast Recording.
All proceeds support the Salk Institute’s wide-ranging scientific inquiries that have yielded more than 50 years of life-changing discoveries.
