One of the most popular genres of music across the globe, Cuban music is a synthesis of the traditions of the people who settled Cuba from African slaves to European immigrants. The Boulder Concert Chorale will perform with vocalist Suzanne Morales, pianist Jeff Jenkins, and a band of Cuban music experts to offer a sample of the different styles developed in Cuba including salsa, mambo, and son. Featured favorites will include “Chan Chan,” “Oye Como Va,” and “Conga.” The concert will also include new arrangements commissioned by the Chorale and an appearance by Bel Canto, the Boulder Children’s Chorale advanced choir.
Please join us for a pre-concert discussion 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the performance.
This show is also performed on Saturday, October 27 at 7:30 PM.
