This event has passed.


The 2016 Marian Anderson Award Gala Concert recognize three individuals who have had a leadership impact on American popular music and who are long associated with Philadelphia – the Grammy-winning superstar Patti Labelle and the equally legendary Grammy-winning songwriting and record-producing team Gamble & Huff (Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff). The Award is conferred upon outstanding artists who have used their talents for personal artistic expression which has contributed to our culture in a singular manner.

We hope you will join us for this year’s star-studded Gala hosted by Monica Malpass of 6ABC, with special appearances by artists whose careers began with Philadelphia International Records including the legendary trio The Three Degrees, The Soul Survivors (singing Gamble and Huff classics), Philadelphia's own Kathy Sledge, and the amazing Ledisi.

If you are interested in attending the Marian Anderson Award Gala dinner, which is a fundraiser for the Award and includes a premium ticket to the Gala concert, please contact the Award office at 215 893-1837.
