- Shaolin Warriors at the Majestic Theatre on Tuesday, October 30, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Click here to see the seating chart for this venue.
In a monastery at the base of Mount Shaoshi in central China, 20 Shaolin monks practice martial arts for five to six hours a day. During a globetrotting kung fu spectacle, they demonstrate the ways of their temple to audiences of all ages through a day-in-the-life performance. The serenity of traditional morning meditation and chanting transforms gradually into something far more vigorous. The ensuing show of acrobatic, defensive fighting choreography often supplements the monks’ physical discipline with staffs, axes, and daggers.
- Chucho Valdés and the Afro-Cuban Messengers Quintet in the Lila Cockrell Theatre on Saturday, November 17, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Click here to see the seating chart for this venue.
Now dubbed the "Dean of Latin Jazz," Chucho Valdés could play music before he could read. At age 3, he picked out radio melodies by ear on the piano. At 15, he formed his first jazz trio. Decades later, the four-time Grammy award winner from Cuba presides over the Afro-Cuban Messengers Quintet. While Valdés hammers the keys with uncanny speed that never leaves melody in the dust, his bandmates keep pace with horns and African-influenced beats. After an infectious recent concert at Carnegie Hall, the New York Times praised his "dazzling, deceptively casual virtuosity" and "great hydraulic fountains of notes, each drop sparkling as it falls."
