This year’s Juneteenth 615 celebration at Fort Negley Park will feature a special performance from the Nashville African American Wind Symphony. The musical group, which includes more than 50 Black classical musicians, will perform on Monday, June 19, at the historical site.
“The Nashville African American Wind Symphony is a cultural treasure,” said Jeneene Blackman, executive director of the African American Cultural Alliance. “We are enamored of their talent and consider them an excellent choice for this year’s Juneteenth celebration, which is falling on AACA’s 40th anniversary year.”
More artists and performers will be announced closer to the June event, and attendees can expect to enjoy food trucks, a kids’ corner, vendors and a fireworks finale. Additionally, while on the historic grounds, attendees can take site tours and stop by the visitor center.
