What You Can Expect
Once New York's most fashionable neighborhood, Harlem is home to the elegant enclave of Sugar Hill, a lovely area where famous musicians like Duke Ellington once lived. You'll drive along Strivers Row and Sylvan Terrace, see the legendary Apollo Theater and stop at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
You'll then hear the beautiful a cappella voices of the ARC gospel choir as they sing songs of praise and share their experiences. ARC stands for Addicts Rehabilitation Center, the oldest drug-free treatment program center in New York State. The ARC gospel choir was formed to help finance drug-recovery treatments for people in the community.
You also have the option of enjoying a deliciously authentic soul food lunch at the end of the tour.
This was a great day which was made easy as everything was so well organised. The singing was absolutely excellent - they were all so very talented. I enjoyed it so much that I bought the CD. It was something different from the usual tourist attractions and it was great to see people who had struggled with addictions pick their lives up through the music and singing. Thank you for a unique day!
