Jazz Prayer: A Night at the Apollo

Friday, January 19, 2018 - 7:30pm - 8:30pm

The 1933 closing a burlesque theater by then Mayor LaGuardia became a gift not just to New York City, but to the world. It would reopen the next year and soon become the epicenter of American culture and black creativity. It would become a place where a 17 year-old Ella, a  dynamic young showman named James, and a power-house singer named Aretha would not only call their artistic home,  but a place where careers of many musical greats were launched. We can't bring it all, but you'll enjoy “A Night at the Apollo”. Music starts at 7:30pm; come at 7:10 for food and conversation. The non-denominational events create an opportunity for reflection and meditation in an ambiance of quality live jazz music. You'll encounter an hour of music like this. Your donation helps.
