The 7:30 PM concerts, entitled More Than a Song: The Music That Integrated America, will be presented in The Allen Room.

Grammy winner Michael Feinstein hosts the evenings, which also feature the talents of Tony winner Karen Ziemba and Allan Harris.

More Than a Song, according to press notes, "journeys through the important transition in popular music when white composers like Irving Berlin and George Gershwin brought jazz to Broadway, often introducing African American jazz performers and composers like Fats Waller and Eubie Blake to the American mainstream for the first time. This unique concert illustrates the role of Broadway as the social engine that created an alliance society could embrace in song if not yet in real life, and will showcase classic songs such as 'The Birth of the Blues,' 'Ol’ Man River,' and 'Harlem on My Mind,' among others."
