The Mavericks 3/15/24

The Mavericks
Friday, 03/15/2024-, 08:00 pm-
Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing of Arts
1300 Biscayne Blvd,
Miami, Florida, 33132
Website
Cost: $45-$90

The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County is pleased to present Miami-founded, genre-bending band, THE MAVERICKS on March 15, 2024 at 8 p.m. as part of the Live at Knight series in the Center’s Knight Concert Hall.

Tickets for THE MAVERICKS range from $45-$90* and may be purchased now online at arshtcenter.org, or at the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling (305) 949-6722.

THE MAVERICKS, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries with abandon, have gone through three distinct phases since their founding in Miami in 1989. An initial period of heady success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the ’90s. A long hiatus starting in 2003, when the musicians each went their own way. And finally, a triumphant reunion in 2012 that held long enough for the band to recently celebrate its 30th anniversary.

THE MAVERICKS ushered in the fourth phase of its evolution with the No. 1 Billboard debut of their first-ever, all-Spanish album, En Español, released in 2020 on the band’s own Mono Mundo label. Although all 12 tracks are in Spanish, the collection represents a diversity of musical styles and cultural traditions, from tender boleros to brassy mariachi and reimagined Afro-Cuban classics. Seven of the tunes are gems drawn from the vast Latin American songbook, while five are originals written or co-written by the band’s frontman, Raul Malo.

THE MAVERICKS’ infectious live show, which fuses rock, latin, Tex-Mex, norteño and salsa varieties, has earned the group worldwide recognition as “America’s greatest live dance band.” Fronted by Cuban-American vocalist Raul Malo, whose timeless and inimitable voice NPR Music calls “one of the best in the U.S.,” THE MAVERICKS have remained a highly-coveted touring ensemble for over three decades.

Joined by special guest Hector Tellez Jr., whose classic-rock swagger and exotic flair have garnered him a passionate audience in his homeland of Cuba, THE MAVERICKS will be performing hits like “Dance the Night Away,” “All You Ever Do is Bring Me Down,” and “What a Crying Shame.”

During the Superhero-themed event, guests will enjoy drinks and appetizers while bidding on their favorite silent auction items.

The event is an opportunity for the Broward County community to rally behind ChildNet, Broward County’s Community-Based Care lead agency that protects abused, abandoned, and neglected children in the community, and shows support for children in foster care.

The Emcee for the event is Eric Yutzy, WPLG Local 10 News Anchor, and the event hosts are Caitlin Stella, CEO of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, along with her husband, Todd Stella.

Alec Ingold, fullback with the Miami Dolphins, will be making a special appearance to share his inspiring journey.

By supporting this event, you join hundreds of stakeholders who make ChildNet possible. Most of ChildNet’s budget is restricted to specific priorities. The funds raised from the “Care for Kids” event will provide ChildNet the flexibility to prioritize the needs of our children, youth, and caregivers, and take advantage of opportunities that arise and react to unforeseen challenges.

DETAILS: Tickets are $150 each and include the Cocktail Reception, where there will be numerous auction items to bid on. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.childnet.us/events/9th-annual-care-kids-cocktail-reception-childnet-superheroes-cocktail-reception

Spend an evening with Esdras “Photo Tea” Thelusma on Friday, February 23 as part of The Art Of Hip Hop’s Black History Month programming. Thelusma, a Miami-based photographer, filmmaker, and painter, has skillfully captured a diverse array of subjects, ranging from Hip Hop legends and emerging icons to everyday Miami residents. Rather than producing a contrived image, he adeptly captures the innate magnetism of each subject.

Thelusma’s portfolio includes collaborations with the newest class of Hip Hop stars like City Girls and Sexxy Red, as well as established cultural icons like Gucci Mane and Wiz Khalifa. His unique approach seamlessly blends editorial flair with documentary aesthetics, marking him as a tastemaker in the ever-evolving cultural landscape.

On display at the Art of Hip Hop, Thelusma’s works reveal his talent for juxtaposing humility with symbols of opulence, or vice versa, resulting in an elegant body of work that navigates concepts of stardom, class consciousness, and the importance of honoring one’s past. During the event, Thelusma will address topics such as capturing a subject’s charisma or stoicism along with exploring their roots and potential.

This event is not just a showcase of Thelusma’s incredible work but also a forum for reflecting on what it means to be a part of the ever-changing landscape of Hip Hop culture. The Art of Hip Hop looks forward to welcoming guests for an evening of art, conversation, and exploration.

Shops at Merrick Park, known for its pristine outdoor shopping with lush green spaces and a fine collection of retailers in the heart of Coral Gables, will once again host the world-famous Los Trompos art exhibition created by Mexican designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena. This interactive vibrant outdoor display will make its return to South Florida, captivating audiences from February 13 through March 21 for one month only.

“Los Trompos,” which means “spinning tops” in Spanish, is a traveling exhibit that has been displayed in cities around the world, including Mexico City, Paris, and New York. The lively installation will feature eight larger-than-life, three-dimensional colorful spinning tops in a variety of colors and shapes that invite visitors to play and engage with the art. The art draws its inspiration from a toy that has been popular with children around the world since the dawn of time.

The colorful surfaces of each top are created, in part, by fabric woven in a traditional Mexican style. The fabric is stretched over the modules to seat several people at once. Functioning as both artwork and a rotating platform, each sculpture acts as a gathering place for relaxation, social interaction and entertainment.

This large-scale, artistic installation engages visitors in a way that is both meaningful and playful. By working together to create momentum, visitors can spin the tops on their bases.

Los Trompos was first commissioned by High Museum of Arts, Atlanta. Owners of Los Trompos are DTE Energy Beacon Park Foundation and The Downtown Detroit Partnership. The tour producer is Creos.

Los Trompos at Shops at Merrick Park is free to attend (no ticket required). Visitors are encouraged to take the tops for a spin, sit back and relax, or pose for the perfect photo opportunity. The exhibit is suitable for all ages.

The performance takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 3, at Broward Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA) in Fort Lauderdale. A pre-concert chat illuminating the works and composers will take place 30 minutes prior to the concert with Dr. Alan Mason.

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 premiered in 1824, Vienna, to an enthusiastic audience. During its composition, Beethoven was steadily losing his hearing and by the time of its premiere, he was profoundly deaf. He never heard a note outside his own imagination. Various accounts maintain that he had to be directed to face the audience during the performance to see its appreciation.

Complementing these milestone performances will be a selection of moving operatic arias from Bizet’s Carmen, Verdi’s Rigoletto, Puccini’s Turandot and Tosca, and Delibes’ Lakmé.

Following its highly acclaimed 25th anniversary season, including sold-out shows and a celebrated performance accompanying award-winning alt-rock indie vocalist Natalie Merchant, South Florida’s largest symphonic orchestra is continuing its musical journey of excellence inspiring audiences of all ages.

Upcoming concerts include masterworks from Bernstein, Schubert, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky and more, including another SFSO premiere, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Clarinet Concerto. Additional popular music performances including Maestra Alfonso conducting SFSO in a live performance of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ™ In Concert on April 5 and 6 and Classical Mystery Tour: A Symphonic Tribute to The Beatles on May 11, both at Broward Center for the Performing Arts (separately ticketed events).

Single tickets for this program begin at $25 in Fort Lauderdale and flexible ticket packages are on sale now.

Cost: Free

Named after a type of African woven-wood basket, Ukhamba is a ten-foot-tall circular structure with four arched entrances, built of curved wooden elements stacked in horizontal layers. Its construction invites visitors to walk inside and congregate but allows the surrounding plaza and urban landscape to remain visible through the structure. Inspired by Barnes’s time working abroad in South Africa, as well as in Miami, Ukhamba not only responds to Miami’s sub-tropical climate but also unites architectural elements typical of diasporic communities of African and Caribbean origin. It comprises a pavilion that appears part basket, part traditional breeze wall.

Ukhamba is a space for reflection on our relationship to the built environment, urban design, its histories, and cultural memories. Barnes’s pavilion continues the artists’ exploration of themes of spatial identity, migration, the cultural influences of the African diaspora, and its contributions to classical architecture. Primarily using materials found in South Florida, the artist has focused on sustainability and has designed a structure in dialogue with the history and natural environment that surrounds it.
