CSO Teams Up With The Mambo Kings
The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera are proud to present the Mambo Kings as their first opening performance of Luken Pops Series this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Tivoli Theater.
The Mambo Kings are a Latin jazz ensemble made up of five extremely talented musicians who have individually toured around the world with other great jazz artists such as; Aretha Franklin, Johnny Rivera, and El Cano.
They describe their unique musical sound as Afro-Cuban meets contemporary jazz. They preform much of their own music but also take elements from Dave Brubeck, Tito Puentes, and even The Beatles.
The group is headed by musical director and pianist Richard DeLaney, who was raised in Peru and moved to the U.S. to earn his Masters’ degree in music. Percussionist Freddy Colon, saxophonist John Viavattine, bassist Hector Diaz, and second percussionist Tony Padilla make up the remaining four members of the assembly. All of which are brilliant musicians in the top of their fields.
The Mambo Kings are sure to bring a new and energetic sound to the Tivoli. Normal ticketing prices range from $21 to $83. Also, tickets starting at $15 will be offered to student and educator with valid identification.
