Alex Torres and His Latin Orchestra Return for 16th Summer

TWO NIGHTS: Friday, August 2 | Saturday, August 3 | 6:00 to 10:00 pm

The internationally renowned Alex Torres and His Latin Orchestra return to the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum for their 16th annual performance.

A perennial favorite, the orchestra performs annually to sold-out audiences at the Vanderbilt, playing their original blend of Afro-Caribbean rhythms – including salsa, merengue, cha-cha, bomba, plena, and Latin jazz. This critically acclaimed 11-piece ensemble, which tours throughout North and South America, has performed in hundreds of festivals and leading performing arts centers throughout the world.

The Vanderbilt Estate grounds open at 6:00 pm. The performance, for listening and dancing, will be from 7:00 to 10:00 in the Mansion Courtyard. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and enjoy the evening under the stars as the music and dancing start.

Tickets: $65. Table of 10: $750.
