Colored Musicians Club 100th Anniversary Event
On December 4 at 4 p.m. the Colored Musicians Club will present a theatre and music event as part of its celebrations for their 100th year anniversary. Some of Buffalo’s finest actors will be reading scenes from Dissonance, a play based on the forced merger of Buffalo’s segregated musicians’ union, on the very site where these events happened. Set amidst the evolving Civil Rights Movement of the sixties and the changing music industry, the play explores issues of personal identity, group loyalty and raw ambition. Live music will be performed between the scenes by Club members. This event is free and open to the public. The Colored Musicians Club is located on Broadway at Michigan. Music Director, George Scott ; Playwright, Joy Scime; Directors, Joy Scime and Verneice Turner; Actors Greg Natale, Willie Judson, Dudney Joseph, Kinzy Brown, Ernie Insana, Phil Farugia and others.
