For its annual observance, the JCC in Manhattan gathers a range of performers who incorporate King’s vision into their work. Witness a cross-cultural exchange as pianist Anthony Coleman, vocalist Anthony Russell and klezmer clarinetist Michael Winograd blend Hebrew, Yiddish, Yeminite and African-American songs with a contemporary jazz twist. Or catch Grammy Award-winning vocalist Catherine Russell deliver a performance celebrating civil rights in song and spirit. All ages.
