Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Come join us as we kick start a dynamic listening experience with members from the Harlem Renaissance Orchestra (HRO) band. Sit back and listen to some impromptu sounds by local musicians.

Harlem is the birthplace and residence of several HRO band members, and it’s why the members chose their band name to be Harlem Renaissance Orchestra. Not only that, the word renaissance means rebirth or revival, which coincides with the band’s mission to revive and preserve the music of the Big Band Era. HRO’s goal is to reestablish Harlem as the Big Band Mecca of the World. The band has played at venues such as The Apollo Theater, Lincoln Center/Mid-Summer Night Swing, The Westchester Jazz Festival, The Philadelphia Arts Center, and the infamous Copacabana.

To learn more about HRO and their music, please visit reverbnation.com/HRO. More dates to follow. Please check back later.
