More than 60 senior citizens from Guttenberg made the trip to Lincoln Harbor in Weehawken on Thursday, May 3, 2018 to enjoy the free concert “Brazil from A to Z” featuring 14-time Grammy Award winner Paquito D’Rivera. Named a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts, and recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from Carnegie Hall for his contributions to Latin music, D’Rivera led a trio featuring mandolin player Danilo Brito and guitarist Joao Luiz through a rousing set of instrumental music.
The performance was followed by a hearty three-course lunch at Houlihan’s, including appetizers and dessert. The afternoon outing was arranged by Senior Services Coordinator Marisol Montañez with assistance from Nutritionist and Site Manager Alicia Hernandez. Three bus trips were required to ferry the crowd of happy seniors back and forth to the event.
