Spring is nearly here. As the season approaches, a number of events will take place. One event that fans of music should keep in mind is the upcoming Harlem Songfest. Presented by The Harlem Chamber Players, Harlem Songfest is a classical music concert that will take place at Columbia University’s Miller Theater on Friday, June 1st, 2018 at 7pm. This year will be the tenth anniversary season.
Janinah Burnett, who is one of the singers that will perform at the concert gives us an idea of what attendees can expect. “Each time I’ve sung with the Harlem Chamber Players has been a tremendous joy for me; we’ve been working together for four years now. We last collaborated on excerpts from Harriet Tubman When I Crossed That Line to Freedom, words and music by Nkeiru Okoye; coming up this June 1st I’ll be singing “Mi tradi quell’alma ingrata” from Don Giovanni by Mozart. Even though I’ve sung the roles of both Donna Elvira and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, it will be my first time singing this incredible aria. I very much look forward once again to performing with the incomparable Harlem Chamber Players.”
