The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture presents The Harlem Chamber Players' 16th Annual Black History Month Celebration. Harpist Ashley Jackson will open with Take Me to the Water for solo harp from her recent album, Ennanga, followed by Mar Calmo from Recife for solo harp, strings, and percussion with members of The Harlem Chamber Players. This concert will take place on Thursday, February 15, 2024, at 6:30 PM.

The featured guest artist is Nathalie Joachim who will perform her latest work, Ki moun ou ye, from her album, which will be released on February 16th. In Ki moun ou ye Nathalie Joachim asks, "Who are you?" This is a question Nathalie has been answering since her previous album Fanm d'Ayiti, a love letter to Haitian women, the foremothers of Haitian music, and the matriarchs in her personal life.

The multi-disciplinary performing artist Helga Davis will host this event.

* The Harlem Chamber Players will have a standby line.
