The legendary Apollo Theater, the soul of American culture, plays a vital role in nurturing emerging artists and launching legends. Since its founding, the Apollo has served as a center of innovation and a creative catalyst for Harlem, New York City and the world.

With music at its heart, Apollo’s programming spans dance, theatre, spoken word and more. This includes the world premiere of the theatrical adaptation of Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and the New York premiere of the opera We Shall Not Be Moved; special programs such as the hit Bruno Mars Live concert at the Apollo; 100: The Apollo Celebrates Ella; and the annual Africa Now! Festival. The not-for-profit Apollo Theater is a performing arts presenter, curator and collaborator that also produces festivals and large-scale dance and music works organized around a core set of initiatives that celebrate and extend Apollo’s legacy through a contemporary lens, including Women of the World (WOW) as well as other multidisciplinary collaborations with partner organizations.

Since the introduction of the first Amateur Night competitions in 1934, the Apollo has served as a proving ground for new artists working in a variety of art forms and ushered in many new musical genres including jazz, swing , bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, soul and hip-hop. Among the countless legendary artists who launched their careers at the Apollo are Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Luther Vandross, HER, D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, Machine Gun Kelly and Miri Ben. Ari; and Apollo’s forward-looking artistic vision continues to build on this legacy. For more information on the Apollo, visit
