TLI Presents: “Black Voices in Cabaret - Josephine Baker”

Linde Center interior with piano player and violin player


Studio E, Linde Center for Music and Learning, Lenox/Stockbridge, MA

Join Berklee scholar Angela Farr Schiller, PhD, as she hosts a lively and engaging conversation about humanitarian, artistic trailblazer, spy for the French Resistance, and cabaret super star—Josephine Baker. Separating truth from fiction via live archival footage, we will discover Baker's vast career and life through a deep dive exploration into Baker’s expansive song book and the dangerous liaisons in between.

Josephine Baker was a trailblazing singer, actress, and civil rights activist who become an icon in her own time. Join us to explore her legacy in the world of music. Tanglewood Learning Institute talks and seminars are meant to broaden our understanding of music, the arts, and our shared humanity.
