OFF-SITE Culture Coach Event: Night Out in the Parks with Son VeteranosFree salsa class before the Son Veteranos Show at Wrightwood Park. Bring your picnic!
Son Veteranos began as a small salsa group with roughly 5 veterans from Puerto Rico. In merely 4 years, the project has developed a rich salsa dura repertoire and grown into a 24+ veteran band. Participants have found the transformative power of music in a group that has remained open to veterans from the San Juan VA hospital. The Son Veteranos project provides a creative outlet and a positive recovery tool for these Boricua heroes. SRBCC is honored to host Son Veteranos in their first ever Chicago tour.
Presented by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Night Out in the Parks brings over 1,000 cultural events to neighborhood parks each year. Chicagoans and visitors alike, enjoy the breadth of world-class events in every one of the city’s 77 community areas.
