A Little “Site” Music: LGBT Composers, Musicians & Singers in New York City
February 3, 2022 | 6:30PM
In celebration of the LGBT community’s impact on music and in tribute to the late Stephen Sondheim, Project manager Amanda Davis will take you on a tour of LGBT historic sites connected to music in New York City. A sampling includes the residences of jazz and blues artists in Harlem, venues as grand as Lincoln Center and as intimate as a Greenwich Village coffeehouse, and other places associated with a wide range of tunes, such as classical, cabaret, folk, and popular music.
