Harlem Jazz Shrines Festival
May 07 - May 13, 2012
Three esteemed cultural organizations – The Apollo Theater, Harlem Stage and Jazzmobile, Inc. – have joined forces again to present the second annual Harlem Jazz Shrines Festival. Celebrating the rich legacy of jazz in the uptown community, the series will bring established and emerging artists to famed Harlem venues and will pay tribute to Club Harlem, Clark Monroe’s Uptown House, Havana San Juan Club, Small’s Paradise, Minton’s Playhouse, Showman’s Café, Park Palace, Lenox Lounge and the Apollo Theater. Events also will be held at Harlem Stage Gatehouse, Columbia University and other venues throughout Harlem. All events are offered at the affordable price of $10 or free. The festival focuses on the venues, music, and artists that were central to Harlem’s cultural landscape from the 1920’s - 1970’s and on contemporary jazz artists. Designed to create a resurgence of jazz opportunities in Harlem, the three partners will present jazz in all its various forms and diverse formats including jazz dance, concert, club, cabaret and dance events, as well as films and lectures that focus on jazz. Through a dynamic range of programming, the Harlem Jazz Shrines Festival will highlight the role that local Harlem venues have played in the development of jazz.
