About the Show
Discover the history and influence of the Harlem Renaissance, a groundbreaking movement for the arts. CSO Associate Conductor Kellen Gray and members of Project Aurora assemble in a multimedia program celebrating the resurgence of African-American culture in the early 20th Century.
Featuring special guest vocalists, musicians, and artists, immerse yourself in a golden age of African-American culture and jazz with works by Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, James P. Johnson, Trevor Weston, Laura Karpman, and more.
We invite you to experience the soulful, syncopated, and captivating music written and inspired by some of the most important artistic leaders of the 1920s and ‘30s.
