Breathtaking, rapid-fire, original.

Supercharged, daring, delightful. Saxophonist Branford Marsalis is one of the most influential and revered figures in music.

In the Grammy-nominated “The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul,” the quartet performs its most emotionally wide-ranging and melody-driven collection of music to date.

Ephrat Asherie Dance

Nov 18, 2022

Ephrat Asherie Dance

Breathtaking, rapid-fire, original. Set to the music of Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, known for mixing early 20th-century romantic music with samba and other popular Afro-Brazilian rhythms, "Odeon" takes a hybrid approach to movement. This work from sister-and-brother team Ephrat and Ehud Asherie delves into what happens when you bring together street and club dances—breaking, hip-hop, house and vogue—and unpack, remix and challenge them to inhabit new spatial and choreographic contexts.

Branford Marsalis Quartet

Feb 11, 2023

Branford Marsalis Quartet

Supercharged, daring, delightful. Saxophonist Branford Marsalis is one of the most influential and revered figures in music. The NEA Jazz Master, Grammy winner and Tony nominee is equally at home performing concertos with symphony orchestras and sitting in with the Grateful Dead, but the core of his musical universe remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet. With more than three decades of collaboration, this ensemble is celebrated for its kaleidoscopic range of both original compositions and jazz and popular classics. In the Grammy-nominated “The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul,” the quartet performs its most emotionally wide-ranging and melody-driven collection of music to date.

What is the right thing to do? And must the show go on?
