Lost Melodies: A Celebration of Black Musicians

Sat, June 20, 2020 2:00 PM, EDT


De'Siree N. Reeves

Featuring a transcription of Alice Coltrane’s composition, pieces by Clarence Cameron White, and a bunch of original compositions by our performers, Joey Guidry, Nick Dunston, and Alfredo Colon, this performance will be a celebration of African-American musicians in honour of Juneteenth.

A celebration of Juneteenth (Freedom Day), we will be donating 20% of the proceeds to 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission who are working to leverage the rich history surrounding the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre by facilitating actions, activities, and events that commemorate and educate all citizens.
