Editor's Pick: 

Leonard Bernstein's score to West Side Story fused progressive big-band jazz, lyric opera, modern dance, and Latin rhythms into a groundbreaking masterpiece that revolutionized the Broadway musical.

Celebrate Maestro Bernstein’s centennial year with the Grammy-nominated Bobby Sanabria Multiverse Big Band. Just a few blocks from where the opening of the film was shot, they reimagine the timeless instrumental score using traditional Afro-Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, Brazilian, Venezuelan, and Mexican rhythms, funk, rock, and jazz.

Poets La Bruja and Rich Villar kick off the evening with an electrifying set of spoken word.

Arrive early; seating is first come, first served. Gates open at 6:30pm.
