Always one of the most popular parties of the summer, our season finale brings the Harlem Renaissance Orchestra back to the stage for an evening of all-out swing. Guardians of Harlem’s jazz past for two decades, the Orchestra summons the spirit of jazz legend Illinois Jacquet with high-octane renditions of tunes by the Count, the Duke, and Jacquet himself. And to top off the evening, New York’s best dancers face off for the Ambassador Prize, an homage to Lindy hop icon Frankie Manning.
