The Jazz Arts Group joins in the year-long, city-wide celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance with a reboot of its sold-out, “Ladies Sing the Blues: Songs & Sounds of the Harlem Renaissance,” from the 2016-2017 season. Only this time it’s not just “ladies” singing. We’re expanding the list of classic songs on offer, and the roster of outstanding local performers – male and female, vocalists and instrumentalists. From big band tunes reminiscent of Harlem Renaissance band leaders Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson, to memorable refrains by the era’s standout singers and songwriters such as Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith and Fats Waller, the Harlem Renaissance is reborn in Columbus with this timely musical celebration.
Songs & Sounds of the Harlem Renaissance, presented by the Jazz Arts Group, is part of the city’s year-long celebration, “I, Too, Sing America: The Harlem Renaissance at 100.”
