First Fridays! Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert: Plena Libre
Friday, November 3, 2017, 6:00pm to 10:00pm

Carnegie Hall comes to the Bronx! Join us for a special evening of performances by Plena Libre.

 

Performance begins promptly at 7:30pm.

Kids activity table and gallery tours start at 6:00pm

 

Plena Libre performances are thrilling showcases, with hand drummers pounding out mesmerizing beats, raucous horns raising the roof, and swirling and soaring three-part vocal harmonies. Masters of the traditional Puerto Rican plena and bomba styles, Plena Libre fuses these traditions with modern Afro-Caribbean influences to put a new and always electrifying spin on this scintillating music. 

 

Lead Support for Neighborhood Concerts is provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation. Additional support is provided by the A. L. and Jennie L. Luria Foundation.
