Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations planned at the Buffalo Philharmonic

The Mambo Kings have been taking their brand of Latin jazz from Rochester to symphony orchestras across North America since 1995, and it’s Buffalo’s turn in October!

The five-piece band makes its BPO debut in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14 at Kleinhans Music Hall, 3 Symphony Circle. From the sultry melancholy of Astor Piazzola and the burning Afro-Cuban jazz of Tito Puente, to the rhythmic playfulness of jazz great Dave Brubeck and the pop strains of The Beatles, Mambo Kings will be your guide on a Latin jazz tour of the Pan American experience, featuring original orchestral arrangements and compositions of music from the U.S., Perú, Argentina, Cuba and Puerto Rico. Come at 7 p.m. and hear Hispanic dance music performed by The Tech Tones of Hutchinson Technical High School and Jazz F.L.O from Olmsted High School. Tickets are $29-$84 and are available by visiting bpo.org, by calling (716) 885-5000 or by stopping at the Kleinhans box office.

A string quartet from the BPO will perform on Sunday, Oct. 15 at 10:15 a.m. at Destiny International Church, 172 15th Street and at 11:30 a.m. at Primera Iglesia Metodista at 62 Virginia St. Led by BPO violist Janz Castelo, the performances will celebrate Hispanic contributions to classical music and the orchestra’s relationship with its community.
