Harlem Meer Performance Festival - Howard Johnson
Charles A. Dana Discovery Center (inside the Park at 110th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues)



Howard Johnson is a foremost tuba, baritone sax and cornet player who has recorded and toured with an all-star roster of musicians for more than half a century. He got his first break from Charlie Mingus, was mentored by Gil Evans, became (and still is) a longtime cohort of Taj Mahal and Levon Helm, and spoke with John Lennon on the night he died. He leads Gravity, a first-class tuba choir, and a German-made tuba bears his name.

Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
