NYPL present Thelonious Monk Listen List with Helen Sung and Jason Moran

Before Robert Moses and John D. Rockefeller ever broke ground on Lincoln Center, one of the twentieth century’s most important composers was already walking the sidewalks of the Upper West Side, humming to himself. Thelonious Monk, the composer of “Round Midnight,” “Blue Monk,” and “Straight, No Chaser,” lived in an apartment near the corner of Amsterdam and 64th Street. Join us for a Monk centennial celebration, in the neighborhood that he called home. The Library for the Performing Arts presents an evening of Monk listening and discussion, featuring two of today’s most visionary and original jazz voices, Helen Sung and Jason Moran.

(If you need assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts’ Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email. For free events, The Library generally overbooks to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.)

ASL interpretation and real-time (CART) captioning available upon request. Please submit your request at least two weeks in advance by emailing accessibility@nypl.org
