The Timeless Lena Horne At 100 In Harlem

Vocalist Candice Hoyes, a storyteller of vast range and personality, debuts a night of music inspired by the life of Lena Horne. With her all-star ensemble, Hoyes shares a melodic journey through Horne’s seven decade career, accenting the bravery and vulnerability that make Horne’s legacy utterly modern. Candice Hoyes draws from rare cinema, musical theater, jazz and soul for an evocative dramatic experience.

Candice’s vocals will be joined by Sullivan Fortner on piano, Barry Stephenson on bass and Kush Abadey on drums.

Tap Dancer and choreographer Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, a two-time Bessie and Princess Grace Award winner, draws from her extensive Broadway and film experience to create a celebration of Horne’s early years as a Cotton Club dancer. Sumbry-Edwards, who is known for her elegance and grace, harkens to a time of segregation that brought patrons uptown to Harlem in droves in what we now know as the dawn of the Harlem Renaissance.
