New Haven Symphony Orchestra “Renaissance Rhythms: From Harlem to New Haven,” When Broadway was Black

April 12 @ 6:00 pm

The New Haven Symphony Orchestra (NHSO) will present “Renaissance Rhythms: From Harlem to New Haven,” a week of programs spanning the week of April 6- 14, which explore the artistic outpouring of music, theatre, and writing that flourished in both the Harlem Renaissance and New Haven’s Renaissance during the same era.

Fireside Chat: Book Talk with Author Caseen Gaines

Join us in a fireside chat with author Caseen Gaines at Possible Futures Bookstore in conversation with NHSO’s Principal Pops Conductor, Chelsea Tipton II and RICHVILLE Founder Zanaiya Leon. The discussion will center on Gaines’ books, When Broadway Was Black: The Triumphant Story of the All-Black Musical That Changed The World, and Footnotes: The Black Artists Who Rewrote the Rules of the Great White Way, which provide an in-depth look at Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake’s pioneering 1921 hit Shuffle Along, an all-Black Broadway cast and crew that revolutionized the cultural scene of the 1920s.
