Sugar Hill Mornings is a summer musical performance series presented by the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling in collaboration with the Jazz Foundation of America celebrating the longstanding history of musical genius inherent to Sugar Hill. The series has been devised to foster inter-generational exchange and reiterate themes present in the Museum’s exhibitions, amplifying the power of listening, memory, and the human voice as a tool for societal uplift.
This edition of Sugar Hill Mornings features neighborhood legend and a muse of exhibitions at the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum, Marjorie Eliot who exemplifies “playing from the heart.” She is best known for welcoming listeners into her apartment every Sunday since 1992, in celebration of life. Marjorie’s piano performance at Sugar Hill will tell the story of jazz.
