New nina montage w-details 

Tonight, the BRC Orchestra takes over the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.  For those of you who have tix, it'll be a great experience: 18 performers, all female, under the musical direction of Tamar-Kali.  It's part of the Schomburg's Annual Women's Jazz Festival.

In addition to Tamar-kali, some of the other performers include:

  • Angela Johnson
  • LaTasha Diggs
  • Imani Uzuri
  • Mazz Swift-Camlet

According to the BRC, this is the third time that this program has sold out, the other two times being once here in NYC and once in Paris.  Nice!
