Caroga Lake Music Festival: Alex Torres & His Latin Orchestra

Caroga Arts Collective is pleased to announce the 2022 Caroga Lake Music Festival summer lineup, featuring over 35 concerts with 20 guest artists and nearly 100 CLMF resident artists. This will mark the first time since 2019 that Caroga Arts Ensemble will return as a full orchestra and will present a variety of repertoire including its first major symphony, Beethoven's 7th Symphony.

Formed October 1980 in Amsterdam, NY, this 12-piece orchestra is led by the Bronx-born bassist Alex Torres. They have been presented by hundreds of festivals, performing arts centers and events annually to perform their original blend of Afro-Caribbean rhythms such as Salsa, Merengue, Cha-cha, Bomba, Plena, and Latin Jazz. Celebrate Hispanic Heritage month with salsa lessons prior to the show and more!
