Sérgio Mendes & Bebel Gilberto: The 60th Anniversary of Bossa Nova

Wednesday, November 13, 2019 - 7:00pm

From “Chega de Saudade” to “The Girl from Ipanema,” the Brazilian bossa nova has defined cosmopolitan cool from the late-1950s to today. The artform created by Tom Jobim and João Gilberto has been explored by musicians Stan Getz, Frank Sinatra and the SFJAZZ Collective and inspired the next wave of Brazilian Tropicalismo artists like Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. This celebration pairs producer, composer, keyboardist, vocalist and Brasil 66 founder Sérgio Mendes and singer Bebel Gilberto, daughter of João, whose 2000 album Tanto Tempo redefined samba and bossa nova for a new generation.   

You can anticipate the performance to last for 170 minutes and it will include an intermission.
Alcoholic beverages in approved cups and other beverages in plastic bottles purchased from our vendors are allowed into the hall during this performance.
