Summer Sounds Series in Harbor Park!
Sambeleza - August 19
Sambeleza brings Brazilian tempos to the riverfront with a wide variety of Brazilian songs - both old and new - with a jazz twist. Featured composers include Tom Jobim, Ivan Lins and Ary Barroso, as well as younger composers like Djavan, Dani and Debora Gurgel and Arlindo Cruz. The group also performs a number of original compositions to round out the mix.
There will be food vendors onsite -
• Kickin Chicken (chicken/fish/pork chops/sandwiches . . .) and,
• Brown Girl & Round Guy Grinds (hot dogs/chili dogs/red hots/kielbasa . . .)
Performances take place at Harbor Park. It's a great place to hear the music, enjoy the views of and along the Connecticut River, and have a picnic! It's all free and brought to you by the Middletown Commission on the Arts.
Rain location is the South Church sanctuary at the corner of Main and Union Sts. across from the South Green. If unsure of the weather/location, call 860.638.4510 between 3 and 4:30 pm the day of the event or come back here or go to arts2go.org for an update.
