About the Venue: Morris-Jumel Mansion is the oldest remaining house in Manhattan. Situated in beautiful Roger Morris Park, the museum regularly hosts outdoor summer concerts and other events designed to bring our community together to enjoy nature, the arts, and our shared history. Our location, across the street from historic apartment building 555 Edgecombe Avenue, (also known as the “Triple Nickel”) is particularly appropriate for a celebration of music. It was home to artists like Count Basie, singer and actor Paul Robeson, vocalists Cassandra Wilson and Tulani Kinard (Sweet Honey in the Rock).
This event is hosted by Morris-Jumel Mansion and organized by Harlem One Stop.
