“El Sistema” Simón Bolívar Big-Band Jazz
Skirball Center for the Performing Arts (566 LaGuardia Pl., Manhattan)
Free, tickets required (see below)
Banco Industrial de Venezuela and the Consulate General of the Bolívarian Republic of Venezuela proudly present “El Sistema” Simón Bolívar Big-Band Jazz (SBBBJ) in a performance celebrating the ensemble’s last night in New York City during their historic, inaugural good-will tour of the United States. The SBBBJ represents the core values of El Sistema, a ground-breaking youth music program that promotes collective practice of music through symphony orchestras and chorus as a means of social organization and community development. This concert will be a rare chance to experience an international movement that has transformed hundreds of thousands of children’s lives around the globe.
In the spirit of El Sistema, this concert is being generously presented as a gift to the New York community by the Bolívarian Republic of Venezuela. An extremely limited amount of complimentary tickets can be picked up in person only at the NYU Skirball Center Shagan Box Office located at 566 LaGuardia Place at Washington Square after 12 PM on Friday, November 4th.
