Description

Walk the streets of 1930s Paris, be transported to Greece, Latin America and back home, in one night, live at the Curtis! Grammy winner John Jorgenson and his Quintet enthrall audiences with original and classic “gypsy jazz” – the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris. Virtuosic guitar, clarinet, violin, bouzouki, bass, vocals and percussion take center stage in this upbeat, luxuriant evening of live music.

Wine Tasting Option

Between the two shows at 6:00pm, enjoy an evening of food, wine and entertainment amidst the backdrop of beautiful artwork in the Brea Gallery. Several distinctive wine selections will be paired with foods that complement and enliven the senses.
