Kobacker Hall swings to the rhythms of Tiempo Libre

BGSU's Festival Series opens Saturday (Sept. 23) with Tiempo Libre, considered one of today's hottest young Latin bands. Comprising some of the most sought-after musicians in Miami, the group is following the traditions of the great timba bands and holds true to its Cuban roots with a musical blend of jazz, traditional Cuban and Afro-Cuban music.

The performance begins at 8 p.m. in Kobacker Hall of the Moore Musical Arts Center. Tickets are $18, $25 and $30, and can be reserved by calling the center box office at 2-8171.

The University community is also invited to enjoy a free salsa lesson before the concert. Taught by University Dance Program faculty member Tammyan Metz Starr and BGSU dance students, the lesson will begin at 7 p.m. in Bryan Recital Hall in the musical arts center.
