100 Years of Arts and Culture

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance and the opening of Children’s Creations of Color: A Celebration of Black History Month, Harlem-based arts organizations join together to celebrate artists of Harlem from then, now, and tomorrow. Members of The Harlem Chamber Players -- violinists Ashley Horne and Jessica McJunkins, violist Nicole Wright and cellist Wayne Smith -- will join in this event. Other artists/participants include Harlem Opera Theater, representatives of the 369th Regiment Harlem Hellfighters and the Harlem Youth Marines.


Thank you to all who contributed to our Indiegogo Campaign in support of our season-end production of the Nathaniel Dett oratorio The Ordering of Moses. We are pleased to announce we reached our minimum goal at $20,095. The campaign is now closed, and we are seeking the rest of the funds for this event via other grant funders. Our intent now is to pay every single performer, including all 100 members of the choir, which will be Chorale Le Chateau. If you wish to support us, please feel free to donate via PayPal or by mail via the instructions below.

Donations of any amount are much appreciated.
