Virtual Sundays: Percussia @ Facebook Live
Jan 31 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Virtual Sundays: Percussia @ Facebook Live | New York | United States

Percussia’s signature sound is created through the marriage of lyrical melodic instruments (flute, viola, and harp) with a variety of percussion instruments.
Percussia is based in New York City’s vibrant, culturally diverse neighborhood of Jackson Heights, Queens. Percussia’s members seek to honor and reflect this cultural richness through the music they play.
While rooted in the modern classical tradition, Percussia’s style incorporates a wide variety of influences, from world music to elements of pop culture. Their one-of-a-kind body of work includes numerous world-premiere commissions, as well as original arrangements by the group’s members. Percussia’s repertoire is sophisticated enough to delight seasoned chamber-music lovers, yet accessible enough to appeal to nontraditional audiences.
Percussia has performed in community-based settings–libraries, churches, museums, and laundromats–and at more traditional chamber-music settings, such as the DiMenna Center for Classical Music, Drew University, and St. John’s University.
Percussia’s members are Ingrid Gordon (artistic director and percussion), Susan Jolles (harp), Margaret Lancaster (flute), Lev “Ljova” Zhurbin (viola), and Frank Cassara (percussion).
Percussia occasionally collaborates with guest musicians to expand their sound. Past guest artists include Nurit Pacht (violin), Barbara Podgurski (piano), James Myers (piano), Pascal Archer (clarinet), Anna Urrey (flute), Karen Ritscher (viola), Melissa Fogarty (soprano), and percussionists Bill Ruyle, Mike Lunoe, and John Ostrowski.

Black History Trilogy I - John Lewis: A Pioneer for Justice @ Flushing Town Hall at Home | New York | United States

In honor of Black History Month, Flushing Town Hall presents its Black History Trilogy, a three-part series of outstanding Broadway performers showcasing the music and speeches of influential African American artists, scholars, and leaders.

Alton Fitzgerald White kicks off the Trilogy in “John Lewis: A Pioneer for Justice” on Friday, February 5 at 7:00 PM.

Alton Fitzgerald White, a gifted actor who starred in Broadway’s hit show Ragtime and performed over 4,000 times as Mufasa, “king of the jungle,” in Disney’s production of The Lion King, will bring to life the legacy of American politician and civil rights leader John Lewis, who passed away last summer and coined the popular phrase “good trouble” in one of his most resilient speeches. Following his reading of the speech, White will discuss why Lewis’ words and mission are still relevant today and participate in a short question and answer session with the virtual audience.

Black History Trilogy II – Divine Sass: A Tribute to the Music, Life, and Legacy of Sarah Vaughan

In honor of Black History Month, Flushing Town Hall presents its Black History Trilogy, a three-part series of outstanding Broadway performers showcasing the music and speeches of influential African American artists, scholars, and leaders.

On February 18 at 7:00 PM, the Trilogy continues with a presentation of “Divine Sass: A Tribute to the Music, Life, and Legacy of Sarah Vaughan,” featuring Tony Award-winning actress and vocalist Lillias White, who also wrote and conceived the show.

White, who performed in Dream Girls, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, South Pacific, and Cy Coleman’s The Life, will highlight the music and struggles of the African American Jazz Artist Sarah Vaughan, a pivotal figure in the formation of Be-Bop who has influenced generations of vocalists with her unique style of expression and melodic phrasing. Vaughan helped desegregate American airwaves and set the stage for the civil rights activism of the 1960s and 1970s. Born in Newark, New Jersey, Vaughan, called “Sassy” by the greatest Jazz musicians, was not only an extraordinary vocalist but a pianist, as well, who could accompany herself and perform alone if necessary.
