Fine Arts Series: Tiempo Libre
November 11
7:30pm in the Stephen B. Humphrey Theater at St John's

 “When you talk about the group, you find yourself moving your hips” – Richmond Times Dispatch. Three-time Grammy® nominees Tiempo Libre are on a mission to share their Afro-Caribbean heritage with as wide an audience as possible. Listen, learn, and feel the timba sway of their exhilarating mix of jazz harmonies, contemporary sonorities, and seductive Latin rhythms. The seven members of Tiempo Libre grew up together – studying at La ENA, Havana, Cuba’s rigorous music conservatory by day, while climbing on rooftops with makeshift antennas to catch the sounds of Miami by night. For them, music isn’t just a way of life, it’s a way of experiencing living. The performance will take place at Stephen B. Humphrey Theater, SJU at 7:30PM. Student Activites will provide the first 100 Saint Ben's and Saint John's students free tickets. More information to come.
