While you are attending the Sergio Mendes concert- you can also help those in need.  The Red Cross will be on hand to collect monetary donations to assist Puerto Rico and surrounding islands. ART, WINE AND DONATE!

Join us in the lobby at 7:15pm for a free wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Padaminas Bakery, Buffet and BBQ.  Brazilian artist  Veronica Martins will be exhibiting her artwork.  In 2012, Veronica created the “I Want to Be an Artist” workshop that aims to foster and exercise the creativity of children and teenagers and minimize the number of hours they spend in front of a computer.

Producer, composer, keyboardist and vocalist, Sérgio Mendes is one of the most internationally successful Brazilian artists of all time.  He returns to the Playhouse with Brasil 2017 to perform a night of Bossa Nova hits including “Mas Que Nada,” “The Look of Love,” “Girl From Ipanema” and many more! His hit single, “Mas Que Nada,” is the first Portuguese language song to ever hit Billboard’s U.S. Pop chart and Mendes’ signature mix of bossa nova and samba and distinctive pop instrumentation have ultimately come to define Brazilian music. With a career spanning five decades, his enduring influence on the music industry continues to evolve. A three-time Grammy® Award winner, with three additional Grammy nominations, he has recorded more than 35 albums, with numerous gold and platinum albums among them. In 2012, Mendes received an Oscar® nomination for Best Original Song for “Real in Rio” from the animated film Rio.
