Mitch Frohman Latin Jazz Quartet Comes to the Warner for Valentine's Day
Friday night jazz continues at the Warner's Nancy Marine Studio Theatre on Valentine's Day, Friday February 14 at 8pm with complimentary glass of champagne and strawberries and a romantic evening listening to the sounds of the Mitch Frohman Latin Jazz Quartet.
After 25 years of playing with Tito Puente, many years with Mongo Santamaria, and currently with groups like his Bronx Horns, Mambo Legends Orchestra and The Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Mitch Frohman has embarked on a new small group project featuring himself on sax and flute accompanied by the Curtis Brothers Trio, playing new original music in the classic Tito Puente/ Mongo Santamaria style that has brought him acclaim for over 37 years to all corners of the world.

Built by Warner Brothers Studios and opened in 1931 as a movie palace (1,772 seats), the Warner Theatre was described then as "Connecticut's Most Beautiful Theatre." Damaged extensively in a flood, the Warner was slated for demolition in the early 1980s until the non-profit Northwest Connecticut Association for the Arts (NCAA) was founded and purchased the theatre. The Warner reopened as a performing arts center in 1983, and restoration of the main lobbies and auditorium was completed in November 2002. In 2008, the new 50,000 square foot Carole and Ray Neag Performing Arts Center, which houses a 300 seat studio theatre, 200 seat restaurant and expansive school for the arts, was completed. Today, the Warner is in operation year-round with more than 160 performances and 100,000 patrons passing through its doors each season. Over 10,000 students, pre K-adult, participate in arts education programs and classes. Together, with the support of the community, the Warner has raised close to $17 million to revitalize its facilities. NCAA's mission is to preserve the Warner Theatre as an historic landmark, enhance its reputation as a center of artistic excellence and a focal point of community involvement, and satisfy the diverse cultural needs of the region.
