The Habana Boys at Adelphi University on March 12 at 3:00 p.m.


Direct from Havana on their North American debut tour, the Habana Boys deliver an afternoon of high-energy international music on Sunday, March 12 at 3:00 p.m. on the Westermann Stage, Concert Hall, Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC), 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York.

The Habana Boys is a group of four classically-trained singers and their band who are best described as a mix of “Jersey Boys meets Il Divo…with Cuban seasoning.” Their program will feature music from opera to Broadway (including West Side Story and Guys & Dolls), Motown and pop hits (including hits from The Temptations, Ben E. King, Jackie Wilson, Gloria Estefan and Buena Vista Social Club) – and of course, Latin hits from their home in Cuba. This exciting afternoon of music is not to be missed.

The public is also invited to a free reception on March 12, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., following the concert at AUPAC featuring an exhibition by Adelphi student Daniel McElroy highlighting what Cuban life is like through art titled Centros Comunitarios Cubanos, Cuban Community Centers.

Tickets are currently on sale and are priced at $40/$35, with discounts available to seniors, students and alumni. Information is available at the Lucia and Steven N.
