Berklee continued to increase its visibility in the international Latin music scene with a showcase during the Latin Billboard Conference and Awards in April.
The first of its kind, the showcase at the Jazziz Bistro in Fort Lauderdale, Florida attracted not only alumni but industry figures like A&R professionals, producers, Billboard executives, songwriters, record label executives, and fellow musicians. All enjoyed an evening of music by Berklee's most talented Latin performers, demonstrating that there's plenty of new talent at the place where superstar Juan Luis Guerra '82 went to college.
