Rashaad Newsome-RUNNING-At Park Avenue Armory-Tuesday, November 7 at 7:00pm and 9:00pm

Tuesday, November 7 at 7:00pm and 9:00pm Rashaad Newsome will present his newest performance work at Park Avenue Armory titled RUNNING, an immersive performance evoking an abstract portrait of soul created through light and voice. RUNNING is centered on the musicology term for a singer’s improvised embellishment; a “vocal run” is a rapid series of ascending or descending musical notes sung in quick succession. Running is a vocal effect that spans a variety of musical genres from the 19th century to today. Newsome’s dynamic performance features three local New York City vocalists performing an original score composed by the artist, inspired by samples of vocal runs by Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, B.B. King, James Brown, and Kelly Price, among others. Click on the link below to buy tickets.
