Event description

Description

Music at Asbury is proud to present our first Black History Month concert featuring vocalist / actress Julia Breanetta Simpson in an exploration of the evolution of American music from slavery to the “Jazz Age.”

New Rochelle resident Julia Breanetta Simpson has appeared around the country at regional, dinner and stock theatres in such productions as Ain't Misbehavin', Dreamgirls, For Colored Girls, One Mo' Time, Tintypes, and When the Nightingale Sings. She has also appeared in off-Broadway theatres and other venues in New York including New World Stages, the Triad, and the Metropolitan Room. Julia earned her BFA degree in Musical Theatre at Syracuse University and is a proud member of AEA, SAG-AFTRA and M.A.C.

Ms. Simpson performs throughout the Tri-State area in her one-woman shows "Harlem On My Mind," "How Sweet the Sound," “Julia and the Duke,” and her new show, “Classy and Sassy: A Cabaret Tribute to Lena Horne.” Julia Simpson is the founder and CEO of Breanetta Productions, whose mission is to honor and celebrate contributions made to society and world culture by African Americans through plays, musicals, and concerts that inspire, educate and entertain. Her recordings can be found on cdbaby.com.

“[Duke] Ellington once said 'Music is my mistress, and she plays second fiddle to no one.' The same can be said of Julia Breanetta Simpson who led the audience in song, history and dialogue through a glorious evening. Her velvety notes sailed and floated."
