Fall 2016 Programs Booklet

October 25, 2016

New season, new space, new museum. We are thrilled to present our public programming schedule for Fall 2016. Our four part Harlem: Four Walls series, curated by the National Jazz Museum in Harlem’s Founding Director and Senior Scholar Loren Schoenberg, will dig deep into elements from our current Vibrations exhibit.

In the series NYC: The Afro-Cuban Beat, curated by Larry Blumenfeld, we will explore with guests Yosvany Terry, Roman Diaz, David Virelles and others how the opening of Cuba is impacting Afro-Cuban jazz here in our city. We will also see the return of The Jazz Gallery Mentorship Series and our Harlem Speaks oral history project with Terri Lyne Carrington and Hamiet Blueitt. To close out 2016, Nate Chinen will host The Year in Jazz: A Critics Roundtable.

Grown from the African-American experience, this music of people, of love, of sorrow, of joy, of pain, of family, of community, of the past, of the present and of the future has and continues to have a tremendous impact on American culture. Join us, become a member, and help support our mission to preserve, promote and present this music in all its diversity.
