ON THE TOWN
Join us for a lively juxtaposition of dance rhythms from New York to Mexico as we celebrate the bond between the United States & Latin America. The jazz influence of Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town complements the folk tunes of H. Owen Reed’s monumental La Fiesta Mexicana. Aaron Copland, American composer and close friend to Leonard Bernstein for over 50 years, said “Strangeness between people breaks down when they live, work, and meet together as neighbors.” Come experience this sentiment through the exhilarating celebration of the human spirit! It is an NCB season finale you won’t want to miss!
