Dear Cleveland Cross-Cultural Meetup members,

We invite you to be part of an event celebrating Cuba?s musical
heritage, when the two-time Grammy-nominated Cuban music group,
Tiempo Libre, performs with the Cleveland Institute of Music
Orchestra at Kulas Hall at the Cleveland Institute of Music
(11021 East Boulevard, Cleveland, OH[masked]) on Saturday,
October 24th at 8:30 PM. Carl Topilow will conduct.

Tiempo Libre and the Cleveland Institute of Music Orchestra
will perform Rumba Sinf?nica, a new symphonic work by revered
Venezuelan composer Ricardo Lorenz in collaboration with Jorge
Gomez of Tiempo Libre. You can hear a National Public Radio
story about the Rumba Sinf?nica at http://tinyurl.com/ysctdx.

Tiempo Libre will also perform a joyful set of Cuban jazz
music, which draws on the two worlds of their Havana musical
upbringing ? the classical they studied by day at the Cuban
classical conservatory La ENA and the traditional Cuban music
they performed at night.

There is a special 10% off discount rate for members of the
Cleveland Cross-Cultural Meetup group. Regular tickets for the
concert are $35 and $25. To get the discount please call 216-
[masked] and use the code 6946.

The members of the Miami-based Cuban music group, Tiempo Libre,
were all classically trained in Cuba?s premiere conservatories
at a time when it was illegal to listen to American songs on
the radio. Now they are a sensation in the U.S., with concerts
all around the country and two consecutive Grammy nominations.

Tiempo Libre?s show is a dynamic, high-voltage and passionate
performance of timba music ? an exciting and engaging
combination of Latin jazz and traditional Cuban son. Their
goal is to serve as ambassadors to Cuba?s musical heritage,
while celebrating the American experience. There hasn?t been a
concert yet where people haven?t gotten out of their seats to
dance.

They played Para T? with Joshua on the Friday, October 2nd
Tonight Show. To see the performance please visit

marking, as it was the last segment.)
