Upbeat on the Roof

August 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free
  • August 4: Alta Havana: The group was founded in 2018 by Jorge Gomez, music director and founder of multi-Grammy-nominated Cuban band Tiempo Libre, when he moved from Miami Beach to Saratoga Springs. Comprised of musicians Angel Dueno, Miguel Santiago, William A. Rodriguez, and Gomez, Alta Havana creates music based on the roots of traditional Cuban music—such as son, cha-cha-chá, bolero, and rumba, with the goal of bringing the public an authentic Cuban party where they can dance and sing along.

The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College announce the return of its popular summer concert series Upbeat on the Roof, each Thursday from July 7 through August 18.

This year marks Upbeat’s twenty-first season and it remains a premier summer destination for the best music created by the region’s musicians. Gospel, folk, rock, bluegrass, traditional Cuban music, world music, and jazz are all on tap for summer 2022.

New this year, the Tang offers an art-making station for kids at every concert! Children aged 5-12 are invited to arrive at 5:30 pm to get creative and make art with Tang Education Intern Paul Seggev ’23, the Carole Marchand ’57 Endowed Intern. Each week features a different art-making activity and is free, no registration required.

Performances begin at 6 pm and take place on the lawn outside the Tang. Visitors are invited to bring picnic blankets, camping chairs, and their own food and drink to make it a night. In the case of inclement weather, the art-making activities and concerts will be held inside the museum.

Admission is free and open to the public. For the latest guidelines on visiting and other information, please call the Visitors Services Desk at 518-580-8080 or visit https://tang.skidmore.edu/visit.
