Ella: A Centennial Celebration Harlem Stage Winter Benefit
January 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Harlem Stage– the legendary uptown venue that for over 30 years has been promoting the creative legacy of Harlem and artists of color– for a special winter benefit performance that will honor the life and work of Ella Fitzgerald. This intimate evening will feature jazz icon Dee Dee Bridgewater and singing sensation Wé McDonald, of The Voice fame, as they pay tribute to the legendary Ella Fitzgerald in honor of her centennial. In the spirit of the best traditions in jazz, both of these artists will perform their own inimitable interpretations of the songs made famous by Ella.
This special event supports Harlem Stage’s critical mission to exclusively commission artists and present works of visionary artists of color and also supports the thousands of New York City schoolchildren Harlem Stage serves each year through the Francis Davis/Harlem Stage Arts Education Program.
