Martin Luther King Jr. Day isn’t just a national holiday; it’s a time for celebrating the life and accomplishments of the civil rights leader. This evening, take a respite from the daily grind and go relax to some tunes at the Upper West Side’s Symphony Space, where performers like Grammy Award-winning Catherine Russell & Her Band, Liberty City’s April Yvette Thompson, pianist/composer Anthony Coleman, Anthony Russell and klezmer clarinetist Michael Winograd will be honoring Martin Luther King Jr. with a night full of music. We can’t wait to see how that klezmer clarinet fits into the program.

Peter Jay Sharp Theatre, 2537 Broadway. Event begins at 6:30 pm. For more information, visit SymphonySpace.org or call (212) 864-5400.
