Pictured: Mark S. Doss and Paul Robeson

Presented in collaboration with the New York Philharmonic

Even in the modern age of celebrity, it's difficult to find a contemporary analogue for the fame and achievement of the seminal Harlem Renaissance figure Paul Robeson. An acclaimed professional athlete, actor, and singer whose work as a political activist resonates into the present day, the 125th anniversary of Robeson's birth this April provides an excellent opportunity to take stock of his remarkable talent and accomplishments. Multidisciplinary artist Helga Davis hosts this musical tribute to the great man's theatrical and recorded repertoire, performed by a selection of orchestra members from the New York Philharmonic and sung by the Grammy Award-winning operatic bass-baritone Mark S. Doss, a musical heir to Robeson’s complex legacy who makes his Lincoln Center debut at this event.
