Latin Jazz Composer and virtuoso trumpeter Humberto Ramírez will perform in the world premiere of his new composition, Forever Brave tonight, Wednesday September 14, 6 p.m. at Hostos Community College.
 
The musical composition is inspired by the legacy of Evelina Antonetty who is being celebrated in the Evelina Antonetty Centennial this week (September 12-19) in New York and Puerto Rico with dozens of coalition members and institutional collaborators at over 19 venues.
