Last week we interviewed Jana La Sorte, managing director of Horns to Havana.
Unfortunately, we missed their Jazz at Lincoln Center performance (we’ll post the video if it ever becomes available), but we did make it to their performance the next day at the United Palace of Cultural Arts at 175th Street and Broadway.
The audience were New York City school children ages six to ten, many of them bilingual English and Spanish speakers.
The orchestra played some classic numbers and arrangements by greats like Benny Carter and Glenn Miller. Then they did some Cuban numbers at which point the little ones jumped up and started dancing. This is what it’s all about.
