This free series has been pre- sented five Wednesday Nights in July and August by Mayor Thomas M. Menino, the Mayor's Office of Arts, Tourism, and Special Events, and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with ParkARTS title sponsor Bank of America. Additional support has been provided by New England Coffee and the Lenox Hotel Boston, Media spon- sorship from the Boston Herald, and night sponsor Michael Francis Cahill Fund/City of Boston. Internationally hailed as one of the greatest songstresses of our time, Grammy Award-winning Roberta Flack remains unparalleled in her ability to tell a story through her music. Her songs effortlessly traverse a broad musical landscape from pop to soul to folk to jazz. Classically trained on the piano from an early age, Flack received a music scholar- ship al~ age 15 to attend Howard University. Discovered by Jazz musician Les McCann while singing at the Washington, DC nightclub Mr. Henry's, she was promptly signed to Atlantic Records. With a string of hits including "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," "Where Is the Love" (a duet with former Howard University class- mate Donny Hathaway), "Killing Me Softly with His Song," "The Closer I Get to You," "Tonight I Celebrate My Love," and "Set the Night to Music," Flack has built an outstand- ing musical legacy. In 1999, she aptly received a star on Hollywood's legendary Walk of Fame. Very active as a humanitarian and mentor, Flack founded the Roberta Flack School of Music at the Hyde Leadership Charter School in the Bronx, providing an innovative and inspiring music education program to underprivileged students free of charge.
