The Apollo presents our free Apollo Open House 2020: Celebration of Cool, sponsored by THIRTEEN, with support from Firelight Media and WBGO-FM. This event is co-hosted by our tour director, Billy “Mr. Apollo” Mitchell, and MetroFocus host and producer Jenna Flanagan (as seen on THIRTEEN, WLIW21 and NJTV) and DJed by Keanna Faircloth, host of WBGO’s Afternoon Jazz. Apollo Open House will honor the legacy of the legendary Miles Davis, and looks back on the Apollo’s place within Black history and ahead to our upcoming season.

American Masters—Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool includes mature language and subject matter.
