Ella Jenkins and Urban Gateways Featured in the New York Times

News • Media Mentions, Urban Gateways News

Unlike her fellow pioneers in arts and science, Ms. Ella Jenkins performs regularly, with a zeal unsurpassed by artists one-third her age. In February she released “A Life in Song” on Smithsonian Folkways Records, the same label on which she recorded her debut 55 years ago. And on Friday night she sang for her second favorite audience — adults, many of whom grew up on her records — at a gala for the 50th anniversary of Urban Gateways, the Chicago arts-education organization.
