Broadway musical star Tina Fabrique shares the stage with the Hofstra Jazz Ensemble for this year’s Peter B. Clark Memorial Scholarship Fund concert on Sunday, November 24, at 7 p.m. at The Helene Fortunoff Theater. Fabrique’s credits include Ragtime; Bring In ‘Da Noise, Bring In ‘Da Funk; How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying; and Truly Blessed.
Fabrique is additionally known for her dramatic work, in plays such as Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, The Glass Menagerie, and The Old Settler. She toured with the show ELLA, playing Ella Fitzgerald to great acclaim in regional theaters around the country.
This year’s fall concert, “By Virtue of the Blues,” directed by David Lalama, is presented in collaboration with the Hofstra Cultural Center series The Legacy 1619-2019, programming focused on the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to North America and the ongoing experience of African Americans. Funding has been provided by the Joseph G. Astman Family.
