Thursday at Noon: Episode 5 of the Harlem Walking Tour Video Series

We hope you will join us Thursday, 
April 29th at Noon EDT for the 
fifth episode of our

Harlem Walking Tour Video Series.

The Harlem Walking Tour video series highlights historic 
artistic figures who either lived in or spent time in 
Harlem and how each person contributed to the 
vibrancy and rich cultural landscape that make 
Harlem what it is today. This project was conceived 
by husband and wife team, Terrance McKnight of 
WQXR and harpist-scholar Dr. Ashley Jackson.

The fifth episode of the Harlem Walking Tour Video 
Series features the Negro String Quartet, a group that 
performed in the early 20th century, mainly in churches, 
community organizations and college venues in New York 

Members of The Harlem Chamber Players — violinists 
Ashley Horne and Claire Chan, violist Tia Allen, and 
cellist Wayne Smith — pay tribute to the Negro String 
Quartet in a performance of the slow movement from 
Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96 

You can watch the premiere on our Youtube channel 
or on our Facebook page.

The Negro String Quartet: Left to right are Felix Weir (founder), Marion Cumbo, Hall Johnson, and Arthur Boyd.
