Alta Havana

Join us Thursday, August 4, at 6 pm, for a performance by Alta Havana on the lawn outside the Tang. A drop-in art-making table for kids will be available beginning at 5:30 pm.

Alta Havana was founded in 2018 by Jorge Gomez, music director and founder of multi-Grammy-nominated Cuban band Tiempo Libre, when he moved from Miami Beach to Saratoga Springs. Comprised of musicians Angel Dueno, Miguel Santiago, William A. Rodriguez, and Gomez, Alta Havana creates music based on the roots of traditional Cuban music—such as son, cha-cha-chá, bolero, and rumba, with the goal of bringing the public an authentic Cuban party where they can dance and sing along.

For its 21st season, the Upbeat on the Roof summer series highlights regional musical talent every Thursday, July 7 through August 18, at 6 pm.

Performances take place on the lawn outside the Tang and are free and open to the public. Visitors are invited to bring picnic blankets, camping chairs, and their own food and drink to make it a night!

Art-Making Station for Kids

New this year, the Tang offers an art-making station for kids at every concert! Children aged 5-12 are invited to arrive at 5:30 pm to get creative and make art with Tang Education Intern Paul Seggev ’23, the Carole Marchand ’57 Endowed Intern. Each week features a different art-making activity and is free, no registration required. Check back later for details.
