Get ready for a one-of-a-kind experience as Jewish trumpeter, composer and cultural innovator David Buchbinder teams up with Grammy-nominated Cuban piano master, Hilario Durán, and a global ensemble of jazz greats as they find common musical ground. This cross-cultural blend is, according to LA Weekly, an “absolute cooker … a seamless mesh of Cuban and klezmer that seems like the most natural thing in the world.”
Your evening includes a hosted cocktail reception; live and silent auctions; on-site raffle; exquisite dinner and wine selections by Chef Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille; and dancing to live music by Haute Chile.
