Steven Reineke, who is in his fifth year as Principal Pops Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra, will conduct the performance.

Kendrick released his third studio album 'To Pimp a Butterfly' to critical acclaim earlier this year and revealed he inspired to make an album void of "catchiness" following the success of his second record.

He explained: "I wasn't in the space creatively to make any other type of record. I didn't have the urge to. You've got three singles on 'good kid, m.A.A.d City': 'Swimming Pools (Drank)', 'Poetic Justice', and 'Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe'. This time, I said to myself: 'I don't want the catchiness.' I want people to live with [the album] and dissect it for a long time."
