Sunlight and Shadow: A Musicale of African American Song

January 15 @ 3:00 pm

Join one of Westchester’s favorite sopranos, Yolanda F. Johnson, and several of her musical colleagues, as they trace the history of African American music from its origins in African song to spirituals, from the blues to operatic works like Porgy and Bess and art song compositions by Florence Price and Margaret Bonds. The audience will be carried away to the salons of the Harlem Renaissance by this specially curated concert in the galleries, inspired by the works in African American Art in the 20th Century. The performance will feature the premiere of Johnson’s new musical work, “Sunlight and Shadow,” inspired by a painting of the same name by Allan Rohan Crite, on view in the exhibition.

This event is free with general admission
