At Harlem’s Height celebrates the music of Eubie Blake, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Billy Strayhorn, W. C. Handy and many other composers who led the Harlem Renaissance. In the period between the end of World War I and the Great Depression, these artists awakened the world to the creative and intellectual power of black America. Writing about life in Harlem with wit and deep feeling, they set off an explosion of popular song irresistible in its melodic and rhythmic energy. At Harlem’s Height will include many rarely heard songs by these popular and classical composers, giving a musical portrait of Harlem as it was experienced by the artists who lived there.

At Harlem’s Height is led by artistic team Steven Blier and Michael Barrett and performed by singers Julia Bullock, Darius de Haas and James Martin.

… the oldest permanent floating song party in New York.
