Join us to support the wonderful world of the Louis Armstrong House Museum. This year we are honoring the legendary Quincy Jones, CUNY Senior Vice Chancellor Jay Hershenson, eminent jazz historian Dan Morgenstern & Queens community leader Grace Lawrence. The Gala features a special performance by Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks (Grammy winners for their music on the hit HBO television series Boardwalk Empire). Details are here!
Using materials collected by the Armstrong’s, unpublished photographs by legendary photographer Lisl Steiner along with material from other collectors, Señor Satchmo: Louis Armstrong in South America tells the tale of this historic tour as it has never been told before. A must see in NYC! Now through March 30, 2014.
You will hear Louis's magical voice reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas, A Visit from St. Nicholas,'' along with other seasonal recordings such as "Zat you Santa Claus" and Louis listening to Nat King Cole's rendition of "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" with and an impromptu duet by Louis himself.
Yum! Free candy canes included with museum admission.
Time to plan those class trips & student groups to Louis's House! As a National Historic Landmark & New York City Landmark, the Museum provides school tours designed for students in grades K-12. The tours meet New York State & New York City Learning Standards. Join us!
