    ~THURSDAY August 15. 2019
    6-7pm GUAJIBA y SHARINA "La reinita que canta"This August 15 (rain date August 16) event will feature El Conjunto Guajiba y Sharina “La reinita que canta.” They will present jíbaromusic, rural folk music from the countryside and mountains of Puerto Rico. Director Roberto Piñeiro is a musical powerhouse with years of playing in different traditional music ensembles around New England and Puerto Rico. Sharina De Leon, “the songbird,” is a fourth-generation trovadora who improvises lyrical rhymes in the songs. Come hear the music that some feel embodies the feeling and flavor of Boricua pride!

All of the CHS outdoor concerts are free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and food, or pick up a delicious meal or snacks from a food truck, which will be on site from 4:30 – 7:00pm!
