The Apollo Theater

The legendary Apollo Theater is opening its doors for free this weekend in honor of Black History Month. From Friday, Feb. 3, to Sunday, Feb. 5, visitors will have unparalleled access to the historic Harlem theater, including presentations on the theater's history, Apollo memorabilia exhibits and a host of performances by previous winners of Apollo's famed Amateur Night.

The weekend kicks off with a concert entitled "Community Sing" Friday at 7 p.m., hosted by the Apollo in collaboration with Carnegie Hall, and featuring Christian jazz ensemble Take 6. To learn more about the weekend's festivities and to RSVP for Friday's concert, visit the Apollo's website.
