» Concert: Spanish Harlem Orchestra


Thursday, October 10
Concert: Spanish Harlem Orchestra
Holloway Hall Auditorium, 7 p.m.
The multi-Grammy and Billboard Latin Music award-winning group has established itself as one of the most formidable Latin jazz ensembles working today. The 13-member ensemble is led by Oscar Hernndez, who has enjoyed a prolific musical career as a pianist performing, arranging and directing the groups of Rubn Blades, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Julio Iglesias and Paul Simon. The Spanish Harlem Orchestra has led the resurgence of interest in the salsa music that emerged from the streets of New York City in the 1960s and 1970s. This tour engagement of the Spanish Harlem Orchestra is funded through the Mid-Atlantic Tours program of Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Maryland State Arts Council.
