Remembering the Legendary Miss Lena Horne
Miss Lena Horne was America's first international superstar of African descent who was a trailblazer in film, music, and human and civil rights. Her dignity, courage, pride, and talent influenced many who came after her. Berklee faculty, students, and staff—along with a special guest, the incredible Jo Thompson from Detroit—will star in an elegant evening of dance, song, and spoken word as we pay homage to Miss Lena Horne.
Along with this all-star big band concert, the tribute will include a clinic with Thompson and a panel discussion featuring Berklee veteran faculty members who will recount their stories of working as musicians during this turbulent period in American history.
