BLITZ with Arturo O'Farrill

Arturo O’Farrill and Casita Maria Center For Arts & Education are proud to present BLITZ, a Bronx-based latin jazz ensemble. Blitz is a form of “guerrilla jazz.” Its mission is to breakdown the traditional boundaries, stereotypes and preconceived notions around jazz in order to promote its growth as a genre and ability to reach new audiences. 

BLITZ is completely FREE – that means no tickets, RSVP’s or even advanced notifications are needed. Inspired by the origins of afro latin jazz, the music takes place in the spaces of daily life, and work. 

These free concerts are part of the Building Demands for the Arts initiative and made possible by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts and New York City Department of Cultural affairs. All eventsare open to the public and suitable for all ages.
