Guitar Passions Featuring Sharon Isbin and Stanley Jordan
- The players: Sharon Isbin, Stanley Jordan, and Romero Lubambo
- The show: this trio of six-string masters performing a mix of Latin, Brazilian, and jazz music
- Sharon Isbin's weapon: classical guitar
- How well she wields it: she literally wrote the book on classical guitar with the Classical Guitar Answer Book, won Guitar Player's "Best Classical Guitarist" award, founded the Guitar Department at Julliard, and scored three Grammy Awards
- Places you've heard Sharon: playing with fellow axe master Steve Vai, supplying the Spanish guitar licks that soundtracked The Departed's more contemplative moments, and performing at the White House in 2009, also known as the day you snuck into the White House
- Stanley Jordan's musical howitzer: electric guitar, played with his unique two-hand tapping touch technique
- Places you've heard Stanley: every major jazz festival, including the Montreux International Jazz Festival, jamming with the Dave Matthews Band, in the Blake Edward's film Blind Date, and every time you start up an older Macintosh computer
- Romero Lubambo fighting technique: graceful Brazilian-style fingering on classical guitar
- Jazz legends Romero played with: Dizzy Gillespie and Herbie Mann
Music Hall Center
Built in 1928, Music Hall Center dazzles patrons with an ornate art-deco façade and lush Spanish Renaissance interior. Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
