Women's Herstory Month: Leading Ladies Who Sing

March 20
7:30 PM —
BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, 199 Chambers St.

Choice moments in cinema history when stars who can act and sing are presented at their most glamorous. We’ll see distinguished jazz singers like Abbey Lincoln, Peggy Lee, and Billie Holiday, all of whom successfully made the transition to cinema.

We’ll also watch timeless performances by the best singer/actresses, including Judy Garland, Diana Ross, and Marilyn Monroe. “Scenes Through the Cinema Lens” is a film retrospective focusing on the performing arts curated by Krin Gabbard, professor of Jazz Studies at Columbia University.  He is also the author of  Better Git It in Your Soul: An Interpretive Biography of Charles Mingus and Hotter than That: The Trumpet, Jazz, and American Culture.

Admission is free.
