  1. Thank God someone recognizes that there is an audience for classical in Harlem and it's not all rapp, hiphop and gospel! More, please!

  2. Listen to Terrance McKnight on WQXR. He does a lovely job blending classical, gospel and jazz on his Saturday night show. He has hosted some of the Harlem Chamber Players performances, and he lives in Harlem!
