    Milly Quezada and Ritmo Masacote at City Hall Plaza

    Dominican-born vocalist Milly Quezada, "the Queen of Merengue," has won multiple Latin Grammy Awards, as well as several Billboard and Univision Premio Lo Nuestro awards. In the 1970s and 80s, her band Milly Jocelyn and Los Vecinos scored hits with "La Guacherna," "Volvio Juanita," and "Tengo." Ritmo Masacote is a 12-piece salsa, timba, and Latin jazz orchestra composed of some of Berklee's most talented students and alumni and Boston's finest musicians. Founded by composer/pianist Joel Massicot, the orchestra was created to merge various components of music and dance.

    The Tito Puente Latin Music Series takes place in June, July, and August at outdoor locations across Boston. The seven-concert series is an infectious soundscape of salsa, timba, mambo, bolero, jazz, funk, soul, groove, and more. Performers include Berklee faculty, students, alumni, and world-renowned artists from Puerto Rico, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Cuba, and throughout Latin America.

    Tito Puente Latin Music Series is presented by Berklee College of Music, Villa Victoria Center for the Arts, ParkARTS, and the Mayor's Office of Arts, Tourism and Special Events. The series is part of Berklee’s Summer in the City, which features over 80 free outdoor concerts throughout the Boston area from May to September. As presenting sponsor of the 2011 concert series, Natixis Global Asset Management is committed to preserving cultural experience through the power of music.
