Come join us in Sateren Auditorium on Thursday, October 27th at 7:30 p.m. for an energetic and fun-filled evening! The Augsburg Jazz Ensemble becomes the Augsburg ¡Salsa Orchestra! to perform mambos, boleros, guanguancó, and salsa as part of a celebration of the musical heritage in the Americas and is joined by the Vocal Jazz singers and soloists Ashley Litzinger and Vincent Rosa-Chavez. We are also joined by Jonathan Alarcón from Honduras as a performer and as artist-in-residence. Accomplished in a wide range of styles and with his first love being jazz, Jonathan’s first appearance at Augsburg was as a member of Cienaños, a Honduran band known for their energetic performance and calls for social justice in Central America, as a part of the Nobel Peace Prize Forum in 2017. Don’t miss out!
Presented in partnership with the Department of Languages and Cross-Cultural Studies.
