Mingling and dining 6pm / Performance 8pm
We’re having a party, The Huntington is our backyard, and our guest are a global “Who’s Who,” sharing the global sounds that have expanded our sonic horizons!
-New York-based Ballet Hispánico burns the floor with their trademark “CARMEN.maquia," a remixed and revitalized interpretation of Bizet’s “Carmen”—this time with a rare chance to witness the artistic interplay of dancer and musician as Alyssa Park joins on violin.
-It’s Gershwin x2, with show-stopping pianist HyeJin Kim playing the Concerto in F like it’s a personal love letter to Gershwin’s adopted home of New York City, and Alyssa Park playing the Heifetz arrangement of “It Ain’t Necessarily So” from Porgy and Bess.
-Colombian vocalist Catalina Cuervo breaks your heart wide open with the poignancy of Lin Manuel Miranda’s “Breathe,” and more.
-And in a patriotic flourish, trumpeter Rob Schaer plays a selection from the score of “Lincoln,” taking us back to the values of freedom and democracy this country was founded on.
