Celebrate Hochstein’s Centennial with Mambo Kings and Borinquen Dance Theatre in this special Hochstein at High Falls concert.
See a demonstration of Latin dance by Borinquen dancers before the concert at 11:55 am, then dance with them while Mambo Kings play their signature style of Latin jazz.
Together since 1995, Mambo Kings are enjoying great success as Upstate New York’s foremost Latin jazz ensemble, and have rapidly earned a national reputation for their explosive blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz improvisation. The band consists of Mambo Kings’ musical director and pianist Richard DeLaney, percussionist Freddy Colón, saxophonist John Viavattine, bassist Hector Diaz, and percussionist Tony Padilla. www.mambokingdom.com
Founded by Nydia Padilla-Rodríguez to teach children and teens Latin dance and to boost academic achievement for Latino students, Borinquen Dance Theatre has been holding dance classes at Hochstein since 1985. Borinquen Dance Theatre has been the recipient of many awards including the Arts and Cultural Council for Greater Rochester’s “Distinguished Cultural Organization of the Year.” www.borinquendancetheatre.org
The free concert by Mambo Kings begins at 12:10 pm at the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge. In the event of rain, the rain location will be announced via social media. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a lunch at an area restaurant. Each performance will run approximately 40 minutes.
Hochstein at High Falls concerts are presented by High Falls Business Association, The Hochstein School, and WXXI.
