Our second Our City, Your Orchestra performance takes place at Harriett’s Bookshop in Fishtown, which opened in February 2020, and is named for famed abolitionist and political activist Harriet Tubman.
Longtime Philadelphia resident Jeannine A. Cook founded Harriett’s to celebrate women authors, artists, and activists. Orchestra musicians Ohad Bar-David (cello) and Angela Zator Nelson (percussion), joined by Ajibola Rivers (cello), perform spirituals and works of cultural significance as well as Rivers’s own compositions and arrangements. The performance at Harriett’s also features Jas (ERA), a visual artist from Philadelphia who creates a custom painting in response to the music.
