“Rhythms of the Night”
There’s a special blend of tranquility and passion in the rhythms of mambo king Tito Puente and Brazilian bossa-nova master Antônio Carlos Jobim. When one hears the first bars of Jobim’s “The Girl from Ipanema,” they may begin to involuntarily sway like a hammock in a hot breeze or find themselves suavely proposing to the hammock. Audiences are likely to share that feeling when they elope with the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra’s Pops! program, “Rhythms of the Night,” an evening that’s ripe with intoxicating Latin jazz and Brazilian melodies, plus an assortment of similarly fetching songs culled from around the world.
At the helm of this enchanted evening is the multitalented Matt Catingub, who knows a thing or two about navigating sultry rhythms. In addition to being the son of jazz singer Mavis “Polynesia’s First Lady of Song” Rivers and founder and artistic director of the Hawaii Pops in Honolulu, he’s earned a Grammy for the soundtrack to George Clooney’s Good Night, and Good Luck, and toured the world with “Mambo Italiano” crooner Rosemary Clooney. Telly Award–wining drummer and longtime Catingub collaborator Steve Moretti, recently seen in the movie Jersey Boys, keeps the rhythms flowing with his nuanced percussion skills.
Long Beach Symphony
A community institution for over 80 years, the Long Beach Symphony has entertained generations of audiences. The Symphony produces six full symphonic classical concerts throughout the year at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center Terrace Theater and five more eclectic POPS! concert events in the Long Beach Arena, entertaining more than 32,000 residents throughout the season. Outside of their concert events, the Symphony also provides over 24,000 local school children with access to music at their schools, libraries, and community centers, as well as ensembles and concert field trips for every LBUSD 2nd-5th grader in the public school system. Because music should be above all things accessible, Long Beach Symphony also offers free concerts at smaller venues and fun instrument petting zoos in spaces all over the City of Long Beach, like Cesar Chavez Park, Rainbow Harbor Lagoon, City Parking Garage, and Homeland Cultural Center.
