Dear Friends of Charanga Danzón,

We have a great concert coming up on Saturday, October 9, 2010 at 8 PM. Enjoy live Cuban music and an installation of rippling waves in one night!

Suyama Space will host Charanga Danzón for a special concert within NASCENT: Installation by Gerri Sayler’s suspended waves of translucent hot glue gossamer. Suyama Space is a non-profit installation venue that provides opportunities for experimentation, inspiration, and education in contemporary art.

For those who don’t know us yet, we are Seattle’s unique Cuban music ensemble Charanga Danzón, and our Cuban repertoire includies traditional son, danzon, cha-cha-cha, classical, and jazz. Ensemble members include: Ben Verdier (bass), Jim O’Halloran (flutes), Michael Nicolella (guitars), Fred Hoadley (piano, tres), Lance Lu (shekere, dance), Francisco Medina, Jr. (percussion), Pedro Vargas (percussion), Andy Schloss (percussion), and Irene Mitri (violin, ensemble director).

This is an all ages concert, and tickets are on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets:

General advance admission is $25, ages 12 and under $10. Seating is limited. Door tickets (if there are still seats on the night of the event) will be $30 for general admission, still $10 for ages 12 and under.

Hope to see you there!
