Celebrate Women’s History Month at the Schomburg Center’s annual Women’s Jazz Festival. Join us for an exploration of sacred music from spirituals to gospel with mezzo-soprano Alicia Hall Moran and vocalist Marcelle Davies Lashley.
Gregory Porter performed “1960 What?” live at the Schomburg Center to a sold out crowd!
