When: Sat., July 18 2015
The late, great Roberto Ocasio was a real catalyst on the local music before his untimely death. Each year, the Roberto Ocasio Foundation hosts a Latin Jazz Music Camp. Tonight at 7 at the Cleveland Institute of Music, the kids will perform as part of the 11th annual Roberto Ocasio Foundation Latin Jazz Concert. The free concert is the finale to the Foundation’s 2015 Latin Jazz Music Camp with Camp Artistic Director/Artist-In-Residence, Bobby Sanabria, a world renowned drummer/percussionist, composer, director, educator and seven-time Grammy nominated recording artist. Tonight’s repertoire will feature classic and contemporary music from the Latin-jazz continuum, utilizing Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and Puerto Rican rhythms. (Niesel) http://robertoocasiofoundation.org.
