As you prepare to join us for this momentous return to NYC, we want to tell you about some exciting things you can experience during your time in the Big Apple:

-An Afternoon of Art -
Experience more of the Brazilian culture at the Museum of Modern Art! One of their current exhibits features the work of Modern Brazilian Artist Tarsila do Amaral.

As one of the largest cultural centers in the world, you can enjoy other art museums in the area including the Whitney Museum of American Art!

-Learn More About Nelson Freire-

The Americas Society will be hosting a special screening of a documentary featuring our guest pianist, Nelson Freire. This screening will take place on Wednesday, April 18 at 7 pm. To learn more about the event, click here.

-Dine Like You are in Brazil -
With a program featuring Brazilian musicians and composers, why not treat yourself to dinner at a Brazilian restaurant? Here is a list of some highly favored restaurants in the area.

For those unable to attend our performance in New York, we encourage you to attend the Grand Rapids performances of this concert on April 13-14 at DeVos Performance Hall.
