Build Civic Power at Strong City Baltimore’s 12th Neighborhood Institute

Strong City Baltimore is postponing Neighborhood Institute 2020, originally scheduled for March 28th at Baltimore City Community College, in accordance with the mandates from state and city leadership about cancelling large-scale events due to public health concerns over the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The annual skill-building conference for neighborhood leaders will be rescheduled to fall 2020.

Neighborhood Institute, Strong City Baltimore’s annual skill-building conference for neighborhood leaders, activists, and nonprofit professionals, returns with a day of learning that reflects these extraordinary times for our city and nation. With election season in full swing and the Census count kicking into high gear, Strong City is joining forces with other local organizations to focus Neighborhood Institute’s content on the theme “Building Civic Power.”

BALTIMORE CHAMBER JAZZ SOCIETY HOSTS GRAMMY NOMINATED JAZZ VOCALIST CATHERINE RUSSELL IN CONCERT

0

The Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society hosts recent Grammy nominated jazz vocalist Catherine Russell in concert Sunday, March 1, 2020 at 5pm. The concert will take place at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Enjoy an evening of jazz and purchase your tickets today. For more information, please visit baltimorechamberjazz.org.

With her recent GRAMMY nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album, Alone Together, Russell solidifies her reputation as one of the greatest interpreters and performers of American Popular Song. She is a rare talent, a genuine jazz and blues vocalist who can sing virtually anything. Her repertoire features gems from the 1920s through the present—vital interpretations, bursting with soul and humor.

According to JazzWeek, which announced Russell’s recent album was #1 on its 2019 Year End Jazz Chart, “Alone Together offers a welcome reminder that there’s no one else in jazz doing what [Catherine] does, and that the scene would be immeasurably poorer without her.”
