Summer Concert Series finale slated
Join the Edmonds Arts Commission for Summer Concerts in the Parks with Alma y Azucar on Thursday, Aug. 29, in the Hazel Miller Plaza.
Alma y Azúcar brings you an exquisite and passionate selection of Latin styles and flavors.
Playing a wide range of Latin music beyond the traditional salsa, the new group features instrumentation including violin, trumpet and tres (Cuban guitar).
Band leader Alma Villegas started her professional music career in 2001 when she was asked to perform with two of Seattle's most popular Latin salsa music ensembles.
Her experiences in these two ensembles reconnected her to her youth in Mexico and led her to create a band that offered a more diverse selection including the traditional bolero (Latin ballad), cha-chas, mid-tempo Latin jazz standards, a variety of Cuban rhythms, salsa and bossa novas.
The show begins at 5 p.m. in the Hazel Miller Plaza at 5th and Maple in downtown Edmonds. The Hazel Miller Concerts are sponsored by the Hazel Miller Foundation.
Concerts are presented by the Edmonds Arts Commission on behalf of the Edmonds City Council and are accessible to persons with disabilities.
