Hudson Hall at the historic Hudson Opera House is celebrating diversity, equity, and inclusion through the power of performance.
The Hudson Jazz Festival: Lift Every Voice, presented on February 10-13 and 17-20, hosts a vibrant lineup of live music, art, film, community events, and spoken word in Hudson Hall's historic 1855 theater. Join in on this uplifting gathering to amplify local voices and celebrate culture through works that aim to move and empower.
Curated by Cat Henry (formerly with Jazz at Lincoln Center), the festival features a killer line-up of artists (including 2022 GRAMMY nominees), plus spoken word, film, visual art, community events, and a time-ticketed exhibition opening and outdoor laneway opening night party on February 10. “Lift Every Voice” gives a voice to the artists as they respond to transformative events in our nation’s history and look toward a brighter future.
