The Broadway Celebrates Juneteenth concert will return to Times Square June 18 at 11 AM. The third annual outdoor concert, presented via The Broadway League's Black to Broadway initiative, will be free and open to the public, rain or shine. Songs, dances, and spoken word performances are planned, featuring Black performers. There will also be appearances from special guest speakers. Music will be provided by The Music Performance Trust Fund.
"We know that the arts can bring people together and it is beautifully evident during Broadway Celebrates Juneteenth, as thousands gather in the heart of Times Square to reflect on the importance of this national holiday through live performance,” says Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin in a statement. "We thank the Broadway community for helping to make this third annual concert possible."
The concert will be directed by Steve H. Broadnax III and music directed by Rashad McPherson. Brian Moreland and Aaliytha Stevens are serving as executive producers, with Jhanaë Bonnick as stage manager and Foresight Theatrical's Devon Miller as general manager.
A host and line-up of talent will be announced in the coming weeks.
