In response to the pandemic and the cancellation of Apollo-produced live events through the month of June, the Apollo has established an emergency relief fund to financially stabilize the Theater and safeguard its future. In addition, a portion of the funds raised will be allocated for micro grants to support local merchants and small businesses in the 125th Street neighborhood impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Apollo Theater stands with #TheShowMustBePaused.  In observance of Black Out Tuesday and in solidarity with our artists, neighbors, and the global community, our benefit

This is only a pause, because the movement for racial justice doesn’t stop.  Neither do we.

 As a commissioner, presenter and cultural convener, the Apollo remains committed to our mission of supporting Black art and culture, creating spaces for artists to express themselves freely, and advocating for the safety, dignity and justice for Black people worldwide.

Take a stand for the culture.  Sustain Black institutions and support organizations that unapologetically use their platforms to further social justice.

Love Black People Like You Love Their Culture.

 

Music has the incredible power to connect, transform and heal. We hope you will support the Apollo Theater and join us for a special event featuring music that lifts our spirits, shapes our lives, and continues to unite us all.
