Tickets and information

The Grammy winning, soul–stirring Spanish Harlem Orchestra made its Jazz Standard debut in December 2017 and Tore. It. UP! For on–stage excitement and musical precision, this 13–strong New York collective of musicians and vocalists is without peer. Now in its 17th year under the direction of pianist/leader Oscar Hernández, the SHO has collected two GRAMMY Awards – the first in 2002 for Across 110th Streetas Best Salsa/Merengue Album, and the second in 2007 for Viva La Tradiciónas Best Tropical Latin Album. The group’s latest CD, the self–titled Spanish Harlem Orchestra, features special guests Chick Corea and Joe Lovano on its gorgeous closing track “You And The Night And The Music.” “The music that the orchestra’s members helped create merges ferocious Afro–Caribbean rhythms, arrangements that rev up hard–riffing horns and modern jazz harmonies, vocals that can be suavely romantic or flamboyantly im­provisatory, and lyrics that encompass both the pleasures of the dance floor and the pride and aspirations of the barrio.” (Jon Pareles, The New York Times)
