LatiNew is a new series of concerts that aims to unite Latin and Brazilian music genres, their artists and audiences, through "Noche Completa" events, in which participants can enjoy carefully selected music and a dynamic festive atmosphere for a unique price.

The first edition of LatiNew will be held this fall on October 19 and 28, and November 9 at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater & Bar / Symphony Space, on 2537 Broadway at 95th Street in New York City. Tickets are on sale at www.symphonyspace.org.

In its premiere edition, LatiNew will present a careful selection of the best Latin and Brazilian interpreters with multilingual and multicultural talent. In each facet of its concept of "Noche Completa," this cycle of events will reflect the polyglot and multicultural musical panorama of the XXI Century. In keeping with its ambitious long-term strategic vision of occupying a key space in the international festival circuit, this first edition of LatiNew will be presented on the legendary, world-famous Broadway.

Before each concert a "Happy Hour" with drinks included in the ticket price will be offered, while live music by young artists is enjoyed. After the main show, each "Noche Completa" will conclude with a party with a DJ after the participation of the artists, all with a single ticket of moderate price, closing the night with a finishing touch.
