As with many organizations in Washington Heights, Inwood and Harlem, we have kept working throughout this difficult pandemic, to continue our intergenerational, multicultural work with our students, teaching artists and audiences. And we have never lost our passion about the amazing lessons of adaptability, creativity and community that jazz music has to offer us all.

We are honored to share with you this collaborative gift from our community, Uptown Artists at the United Palace: We Never Stopped Working. Produced by and recorded at the historic United Palace of Cultural Arts, located in the heart of Washington Heights, Uptown Artists at the United Palace is a virtual showcase celebrating strength, focus and drive to continue moving forward with a spectacular line-up of different Upper Manhattan performing artists and organizations. Ours is the last act, starting at 32 minutes in – and we encourage you to enjoy watching the whole show!

With appreciation,

Eli Yamin
