The Luis Muñoz Marín Foundation (FLMM) announced their Concierto Verde 2010 [Green Concert], which was initially postponed due to the weather, will take place on Sunday, August 22, 2010, starting at 6:00pm in the Catedral de Ceibas area of Doña Inés Park. All proceeds will go to the Foundation. [Also see Millo Torres to Perform at Green Concert 2010 in Puerto Rico.]
Millo Torres and his group Tercer Planeta and the Arturo Somohano Philharmonic Orchestra will be the guest performers. The audience will have the opportunity to enjoy an interesting combination of sounds that span Tercer Planeta’s reggae/ska as well as classic orchestral pieces. Both groups will join their musical forces to interpret two of Torres’ songs: “Tierra” [Earth] and “Ella es” [She Is].
Proceeds from the 2010 Green Concert will help to support the educational programming of the Luis Muñoz Marín Foundation—including workshops, lectures, and book presentations—as well as the maintenance of the historical grounds and Doña Inés Park. The organizers also hope to gather funding for the construction of a new visitors center.
Attendees are invited to Doña Inés Park from 4:00pm for refreshments and guided tours prior to the start of the Green Concert. The park is located on Route 877, kilometer 0.4 on the Rio Piedras Marginal Expreso going to Trujillo Alto. For information and tickets, call (787) 755-7979 extensions 22 and 39.
