Two inger-songwriters performing songs with poignant lyricism, from a global perspective.

NANSEERA’S songwriting ranges from folk to soul to country. Nanseera is a 23-year-old, Kampala/Atlanta-based singer-songwriter with an old soul and a distinctive style. The London born performer grew up in Uganda and Ethiopia, moving to the United States for high school and university. All her travels and adjustments bring a nuanced worldview into her music. Taking inspiration from artists like Tracy Chapman, Lianne LaHavas, and Sheryl Crow, Nanseera weaves together poetic stories of losing home, love, and sense of self, then somehow finding them again. Nanseera released her debut album American Odyssey in 2022 and is currently on her first tour in the eastern United States. She released an Americana album a few years ago and had since been working on a neo soul EP she hopes to release soon

United Palace: The Crack-a-lackin’ Classical Concert

Date: Sunday, May 5th | Doors: 4:30pm | Show: 5:00pm | Free with registration | 


The United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA) joyfully presents The Crack-a-lackin’ Classical Concert, a multi-genre musical performance made for the community, by the community. “Crack-a-lackin’” is old-time (as far back as the 1990s!) urban slang for what’s new, relevant, and happening. We think it is a great description of how people should feel about classical music.

The program celebrates the beauty of classical music by showcasing it in innovative and unexpected ways, highlighting the dynamic talents of performers of all ages. The performance features music by both living and deceased composers interpreted through voice, instruments, dance, video and even turn tables. The evening culminates with the illustrious New York Youth Symphony performing Symphonie Fantastique by Hector Berlioz.

Featured artists include:

DJ Boo

Julia Bengtsson Dance

Leadlights Ensemble

New York Youth Symphony

Washington Heights Community Choir

The Young People’s Chorus of New York City

We are committed to making classical music accessible for all, so come and see for yourself!
