BRIC Stands With Our Black Community

A Letter From Our President:

In this moment of profound reckoning for our country, I'm stunned by having witnessed so brazenly the ongoing consequences of whiteness being weaponized against Black bodies. I grieve for the Black lives taken from us: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. I'm also pained by the toll COVID-19 has taken on our country, our city, our borough, and our neighbors. KEEP READING >>

Our 38th season comes to a mighty close with the R&B diva ANDRA DAY, a superstar in the making who sings with “Eartha Kitt’s unflappable confidence, Amy Winehouse’s effortless grasp of classic jazz, Billie Holiday’s access to raw emotion, and Adele’s range and pop sensibility.” (NPR) Day has been in good company since her cover of Jessie J’s “Mamma Knows Best” became a YouTube sensation and caught the ear of Warner Bros. Her debut studio album, Cheers to the Fall, released in August 2015, was produced by Adrian Gurvitz and Raphael Saadiq, and featured Questlove, James Poyser of The Roots, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and The Dap-Kings. Her duet with Stevie Wonder in an Apple commercial capped off the year, and then Spike Lee, after seeing her perform at Sundance Film Festival, directed her video for Forever Mine, the record’s first single. Welcome to Brooklyn, Miss Day.

The night begins with SON LITTLE, a Philadelphia bluesman/nu-soul innovator who “doesn’t strive to reproduce his influences; he recombines them into something new.” (NPR) Little first gained notice through collaborations with The Roots and electronic producer RJD2. “But on his own, he builds an idiosyncratic musical world from the ground up.” (NPR)
