Led by conductor, music arranger and saxophonist Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque, also known as Maestro Spok, the 17-piece SpokFrevo Orquestra's infectious, energetic music is a hit in their native Brazil, but their style of music has remained little-known in America until now. SpokFrevo's sound combines classic frevos, a style of music equally influenced by Brazilian traditions and big band jazz, with new arrangements and exciting improvised solos, showcasing saxophones, trumpets, trombones, basses, guitars and percussion to spectacular effect. Special guests for this performance include 2013 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition winner Melissa Aldana and Wycliffe Gordon, a former member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

About the Ticket Supplier: New York PhilharmonicThe New York Philharmonic is by far the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. Founded in 1842 by a group of local musicians led by American-born Ureli Corelli Hill, the Orchestra currently plays some 180 concerts a year. On December 18, 2004, the Philharmonic gave its 14,000th concert--a milestone unmatched by any other orchestra in the world.
Since 1917 the Philharmonic has recorded nearly 2,000 albums; more than 500 recordings are currently available. In February 2003, the Orchestra was honored by The Recording Academy with a Trustees Award in recognition of its outstanding contributions to the industry and American culture. Members of the Philharmonic also performed on the 45th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, televised internationally from New York's Madison Square Garden -- the first time that a major symphony orchestra had performed live on the Grammy Awards.
