This year, the July Outdoor Concert Series celebrates the French Caribbean with some of best musicians from Guadeloupe and Haiti.

Grammy-nominated performer and composer Nathalie Joachim is a Haitian-American artist hailed for being “a fresh and invigorating cross-cultural voice” (The Nation). Her creative practice centers an authentic commitment to storytelling and human connectivity while advocating for social change and cultural awareness, gaining her the reputation of being “powerful and unpretentious.” (The New York Times). Joachim is Assistant Professor of Composition at Princeton University and is regularly commissioned to write for orchestra, instrumental and vocal ensembles, dance, and interdisciplinary theater. Joachim’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, Ki moun ou ye—an intimate examination of ancestral connection and self—was co-released by Nonesuch Records and New Amsterdam Records in February 2024. In this performance, Joachim sings and plays the flute, joined by her bassist and percussionist.
