Name: Classical Music Festival: Mambo Kings
Date: August 12, 2017
Time: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM MDT
Event Description:
Join us on the second night of the seventh annual Big Sky Classical Music Festival when we branch out of the traditional classical realm with the Afro-Cuban contemporary jazz sounds of Mambo Kings. 

Mambo Kings, together since 1995, are enjoying great success as Upstate New York’s foremost Latin jazz ensemble, and have rapidly earned a national reputation for their explosive blend of Afro Cuban rhythms and jazz improvisation.

Since their orchestral debut in 1997 with the Rochester Philharmonic and Conductor Jeff Tyzik, Mambo Kings have appeared at the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival and in Pops concerts with orchestras in Baltimore, Vancouver, Detroit, Dallas, Naples (FL) and Portland (OR), among many others, performing original compositions and arrangements by pianist Richard DeLaney.

Their last tour featured Mambo Kings with the Erie Philharmonic and the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra, as well as a return to Durango for the 25th Anniversary Season of Music In The Mountains and an appearance with RPO in Jeff’s Birthday Bash. They’ve also appeared with Jeff Tyzik and the Florida Orchestra and Carl Topilow and the Cleveland Pops.
