Free Outdoor ¡CELEBRACIÓN! Event Tiempo Libre

Tiempo Libre is comprised of seven classically trained musicians internationally renowned for their critically acclaimed Latin-fused music, described by The New York Times as “dance music of sophistication and abandon.” The members of three-time Grammy-nominated Tiempo Libre are true heirs to the musical tradition of their native Cuba. This Miami-based group is celebrated for its performances of timba music, an irresistible, dance-inducing mix of Latin jazz and Cuban songs. Tiempo Libre has introduced Cuban music to new audiences through appearances on shows such as The Tonight Show, Live from Lincoln Center and Dancing with the Stars. Bring your friends, family and your dancing shoes to join us on the Engel Plaza for a FREE outdoor dance party. Local food trucks will be on-site. Come early at 6:00 p.m. for a FREE Latin dance class led by Sergio Rodriguez!
Center Members join us for a VIP reception at 6:00 p.m. For more information on membership and to reserve your seat, contact Development at 205 996 6113 or ASCmembership@uab.edu
