Join us for a full day of in-person activities celebrating the arts and culture of El Barrio! Inspired by our current exhibition, Raphael Montañez Ortiz: A Contextual Retrospective, we are honoring the founder of El Museo by celebrating the community that is home to the museum: El Barrio. Meet us on 104th Street for family-friendly music, art activities, and neighborhood tours, as well as free admission to Las Galerías.
The block party will be followed by a concert at 4pm in El Museo’s El Teatro, featuring Grammy Award winning musician Davíd Sanchez’s Carib, presented in collaboration with Carnegie Hall Citywide. Grammy Award winner David Sánchez is recognized worldwide as one of the finest saxophonists of his generation. Combining instrumental mastery, an unmistakable sound, and deep knowledge of jazz and Latin music—as well as the many traditions that influence them—Sánchez achieves extraordinary results as both a performer and bandleader. The performers include David Sánchez, Saxophone; Luis Perdomo, Piano and Fender Rhodes Piano; Ricky Rodriguez, Bass; Obed Calvaire, Drums; and Markus Schwartz, Percussion.
