What better venue to celebrate the American artform than The Kennedy Center in Washington DC?

How about collaborating with New York’s Apollo Theatre, in the heart of Harlem, and present at both venues?

The Apollo played a major role in the genesis of the Jazz genre, and they continue to showcase this musical art, its legacy, and its artists.
