Event Details

Apollo Live Wire events are free and open to the public. Audiences include students, professionals, and other individuals with a desire to hear an engaging conversation, while increasing their knowledge of the subject matter. Apollo Live Wire discussions focus on topics pertinent to the history of the Apollo Theater and the Theater’s role in shaping American entertainment. 

On Thursday, May 9 Harlem Historian John Reddick takes us on a journey back to the 1800 - 1900s to meet some of the musicians, singers, and songwriters who helped shape Harlem’s music legacy. Mr. Reddick will be accompanied by special guest choreographer Ken Roberson and singer Lady Leah to demonstrate and discuss examples of the evolution of jazz music from throughout that time period.

Join in on the discussion!  Tweet us your questions at @ApolloEd using #ApolloLW and John may answer them during the event!
