Our 2017/18 season features 22-time Grammy-winner and Latin Jazz alchemist Chick Corea with his new Chick Corea / Steve Gadd Band; American Rhapsody: the Gershwin Songbook, a unique concert celebrating one of the most indelible composers of the 20th Century; Qryq Qyz: Forty Girls, a performance of music, film, epic storytelling and movement exploring the world of Central Asian women, and renowned Afro-Venezuelan musician and cultural ambassador Betsayda Machado. This season promises to be one of global celebration, artistic excellence and community vibrancy.
