11-10-2013 12:00:00 12-10-2013 12:00:00 America/New_York The Sweet Science Suite In this deeply personal evening of music and dance, composer Fred Ho's Green Monster Big Band channels the spirit of Muhammad Ali and other fighter figures who knew how to take punches while standing their ground. Performing choreography by Ho and Emmanuel Brown (a lead in Broadway's Spider-man), dancers Jerry Ford, Teake, and Brown himself invoke everything from lightning-quick martial arts to the bounce and sting of Ali's dazzling footwork. Marie Incontrera conducts Ho's exuberant jazz score as it delivers a swaggering, brassy testament to the champion's strut, color-blind vision, and humanity. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=139815 Brooklyn Academy of Music Brooklyn Academy of Music
