Berklee Summer Concert SeriesOrquesta Bacharengue
Orquesta Bacharengue, led by Berklee faculty member Ricardo Monzón, was inspired by the enthusiasm that grew around the formation of the Berklee Merengue Ensemble in 2008. Drawing on a wealth of connections between students, faculty, and Boston-area musicians, the group brings talented musicians together to perform two popular genres developed in the Dominican Republic, bachata and merengue, hence the name Bacharengue. The energy and dynamism of this combination will surely get the audience dancing. Joining Orquesta Bacharengue for this concert will be special guest Henry Jiménez, composer, pianist, producer, and arranger for Grammy-winner Olga Tañón and Latin Grammy-winners Johnny Ventura and Milly Quezada.
