Clairdee — A Love Letter to Lena album release celebration

Sunday, March 8, 7 pm at Freight & Salvage

It integrates inventive arrangements of songs by Billy Strayhorn and contemporary composers with compelling storytelling — examining Horne’s personal struggles and pivotal role in changing attitudes about race and America’s stereotypical view of African-Americans.
