Ragtime ascending to Jazz - Armory Arts Week.
WHAT:   Armory Arts week

Join us for an evening with cultural historian, collector and Harlem resident John T. Reddick. His walking tour showcases the influences and collaborations between Black and Jewish performers, composers and musicians who once resided in Harlem and honed their performing skills at neighborhood venues beginning in the Ragtime era of the 1890's and through the 1920's evolution of blues, jazz and American musical theater. The tour ends at an exhibition of John's rare collection of music sheets illustrating that era.

Not only was American art taking a radical turn in 1913 with the Armory Show, but so too was American music. In Harlem, one-hundred blocks north of the armory, black and Jewish composers were crafting an American music that was radically evolving from European traditions, infused with the African American rhythms of ragtime, spirituals and the blues. The musical collaborations of this era would fuel Jazz, as well as theatrical compositions and performance emanating from Harlem and culminating in America's 20th Century musical dominance.

For Jewish composers like Gershwin, Hammerstein, and Richard Rodgers, as well as their African American counterparts, Duke Ellington, W. C. Handy, James Reese Europe and others, Harlem was not just home, but their laboratory, a place where they honed and showcased their talents.

Participants meet at the Apollo Theater, tour the historic Harlem neighborhood for 6 blocks, ending at Restorante Settepani to view the exhibition, conversation and dinner with Mr. Reddick.
