WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

More than 20 female musicians from the Black Rock Coalition Orchestra - with Orchestra leader Tamar-kali, Lisala Beatty, Joi, Toli Nameless, and Imani Uzuri, plus special guest artists to be announced soon - sing the praises and perform the songs of Nina Simone in an evening-length performance presented by Harlem Stage as part of its Uptown Nights music series. Seven years after Simone's death and fresh off of a string of standing-room only shows in France, the Black Rock Coalition Orchestra celebrates one of the most burnished legacies in Black music with performances that highlight her unwavering influence on today's most dynamic young Black musicians. A "Nina Remix After-Party" featuring DJ Reborn follows the performance in the Aaron Davis Hall lobby for all ticket holders.
