(Effective August 16th, 2021) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that all indoor arts and entertainment venues must adhere to a policy of 100% vaccination against COVID-19 for all visitors and staff (with exceptions for medical or religious reasons or children under 12) effective August 16th, 2021. This policy supersedes all other mandates around COVID protocols, and allows (as per CDC guidance from April 2021) for fully vaccinated audiences to forego masking and social distancing requirements. Venues have the ability to add additional restrictions on visitation or staff as they see fit. Flushing Town Hall’s policy will adhere closely to the New York City mandate, but we will maintain some lower capacity limits for the remainder of 2021.
This event will take place in our Gallery space. If you are interested in attending this event in person, please read the full COVID Safety Policy carefully before purchaing tickets.
Virtual Tickets: $7/$5 Members (Due to unforeseen circumstances, there will be no virtual streaming.)
In-Person Tickets (42 tickets only): $12/$10 Members
“An extraordinarily pliable voice in settings rich with melody, emotion and rhythm. his gift for melody and his persuasive powers for interpretation establish an instant connection for listeners(…) always fascinating.” – Los Angeles Times.
Flushing Town Hall presents an in-person, live concert "Beautiful Vibration" - Colors of African Music featuring award-winning vocal virtuoso Gino Sitson. Originally from the Bamiléké region of Cameroon, Central Africa, Gino Sitson’s daring musical project combines jazz, gospel, blues and traditional African polyphonies, polyrhythms and melodies in a most innovative way. Join us for an exciting and energetic combination of new sounds, where percussive grooves and enchanting vocals are intertwined with lyrical melodies. His family comes from a long line of musicians known as Ntontas ("players of horns"). Sitson is a UNICEF Cameroon Goodwill Ambassador.
