The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center opened its doors to audiences in October 2008. Come celebrate its 10th Anniversary 2017/18 Season by attending one or more of these exciting November performances.
First up, Grammy-nominated mandolinist Avi Avital partners with the bold Brooklyn indie chamber orchestra The Knights and soulful Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh for an adventurous night of multi-genre music ranging from classical masterworks to Middle Eastern to jazz (November 8). Next, Impro Theatre returns to The Edye for L.A. Noir Unscripted, a completely improvised Raymond Chandler/James M. Cain inspired night of murder and seduction, featuring private dicks, femme fatales and colorful characters from the dark and seedy underbelly of 1940s/50s Los Angeles (November 10-12).
On November 13, Japanese jazz pianist phenomenon Hiromi joins forces with Colombian harpist Edmar Castañeda for an electrifying collaboration that began in 2016, led to their current 2017 world tour as a duet and an album entitled Live in Montreal recently released in September. “The first time I heard Edmar I simply said, ‘WOW!’” declared Hiromi. “So now, I would like all of you to hear his music so you can go ‘WOW!’ too.”
