Hispanic Heritage month runs from September 15 to October 12, but, in Jamaica Plain, we celebrate the Hispanic Heritage everyday! On Sunday, October 21, 2012, at 3:00 p.m. vocalist and song-writer Maura Mendoza, with Jeremy Quick, guitar, will present a program of popular Latin-jazz and Pop music, uniquely arranged for the pairing of jazz guitar and soaring vocals, at the Loring-Greenough House, 12 South St, Jamaica Plain MA, as part of the Sunday Afternoon at the ‘Greenough House parlor concert series.
The Sunday Afternoon at the ‘Greenough House series, beginning its 13th season, recreates the atmosphere of 18th and 19th century “musical afternoons” in the 1760 Loring-Greenough House, twice monthly, October to May.
