Description

The Schomburg Center’s Annual Women's Jazz Festival, in honor of Women’s History Month, features some of the best-known and unsung female performers in jazz today. The 2019 festival is slated for each Monday in March – March 4, 11, 18 and 25.

Join us for the opening night performance Dear Nina: A Sonic Love Letter to Nina Simone with Drea d'Nur & Strings by Rootstock Republic.

Power, poise and passion reign supreme in this pairing of voice and strings that celebrates the legendary-and at times uncharted-cannon of Nina Simone. Drea d'Nur (Vocalist/Pianist) accompanied by a 6-piece string ensemble, courtesy of Rootstock Republic: LIVE, share center stage in this uniquely intimate and newly orchestrated songbook of Nina's Love Songs, Blues and Protest Music.
