Films at The Forum x Music Monday: Summer of Soul + Percussion Workshop

Join us for a special Music Monday x Films at The Forum event, featuring a hands-on drum workshop (5:30 pm) followed by a screening of the Oscar-winning documentary film, Summer of Soul (2021) at 7:30 pm.

Part music film, part historical record, Summer of Soul documents the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival, which took place over six weeks in Harlem’s Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The footage was largely forgotten—until recently revived as part of this Questlove-produced film.

Before the film screening, Collectives 4 Arts, Music & Dance will host a hands-on Dominican Folk Percussion Workshop. Join us for an engaging conversation on the history of percussive instruments, followed by a live demo and jam session.

Our Films at The Forum program brings free movie screenings to The Forum throughout the year, while Music Monday is a free monthly concert series hosted in our ground-floor Atrium.

Location: 605 W 125th St

Time: 5:30-10:30 pm EDT

Free!
