Fandango at the Wall

October 23
Bing Concert Hall

David Garten

In a project inspired by a fandango festival held annually at the mesh fence bordering Tijuana, Mexico, O’Farrill brings 30 musicians from the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra to the Bing. Proud of being an American, O’Farrill said in a 2019 NPR interview that the concert is equal to “elegant activism.” By celebrating the reconciliatory bridge built through music, “jamming across the mesh” at a fandango becomes possible for audiences worldwide.
