Plus salsa class with Hunter Houde
Weaving the musical bridges connecting Cuban son, salsa, timba, and funk, the trombone-driven, power salsa octet Ola Fresca, under the direction and creative energy of Jose Conde, has created a swinging, fearless tropical Latin sound directly from Brooklyn, New York. The group’s discography includes their 2004 debut album Ay! Que Rico, the 2008 Independent Music Award-winning (R)Evolucion, and ELIXIR, and they have performed throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and parts of Latin America with engagements at the Chicago World Music Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival, Central Park Summerstage, at the Kennedy Center, and at the NY Global Rhythm Festival.

New York City’s preeminent steel drum band ensemble, Jah Pan, is comprised largely of musicians from Trinidad and Tobago–the country that created steel drums (“pans”), and is home to the majority of the world’s best players. Jah Pan’s steel drum, calypso musicians, and reggae singers have performed all over the world at events ranging from backyard parties to Presidential receptions, on NBC’s TODAY Show, at the U.S. Open, on television, and in major motion pictures.

Plus swing dance class with Paolo Pasta Lana
Founded in 2006 by composer/arranger Brian Carpenter, the Ghost Train Orchestra explores music from a transitional time and place in America – the late 1920s in Chicago and Harlem, when the jazz orchestra was being developed by trailblazing bandleaders. The group made its debut at the 90th anniversary celebration of the historic Regent Theater in Boston, and has since performed at the Chicago Jazz Festival, NY Winter JazzFest, Mass MoCA, Museum of Modern Art, John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The Ghost Train Orchestra’s initial recording, Hothouse Stomp, achieved widespread critical acclaim and reached the top 10 of the Billboard Jazz charts; follow-up recordings include Book of Rhapsodies (2013), and Hot Town (2015).
