THEATRE AT RVCC TO PRESENT SOL Y CANTO AS PART OF ITS FAMILY SERIES
The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) in North Branch will present Sol Y Canto, Friday, May 18, at 7 p.m.
The production is the final performance in this season?s Family Series , specially designed for families with children ages eight and older.
Sol Y Canto offers rich vocal harmonies, sumptuous Spanish guitar playing and a combination of beautiful ballads and churning Latin rhythms. The group?s unique sound has brought audiences to their feet from the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC to Puerto Rico?s Conservatorio de M?sica. World Roots has said of the group: ?They preserve much of the instrumentation and sassiness of the music of Cuba, the Caribbean, Brazil and Argentina, but they also breathe new life into the music with exciting arrangements, standout vocals and top-notch playing.?
Tickets to the Family Series performances cost $20.
