The Longmont Museum’s Summer Concert Series comes to a close today.
Quemondo, which has built a reputation as one of Colorado's hottest salsa bands, will wrap up the series with a show at Stewart Auditorium. The high-energy 11-piece band, which includes Cuban-style drum kit, timbales, congas, bass, piano, five vocalists and a three-piece horn section, performs traditional and contemporary sounds of Latin music. Members of the band are collectively from Colombia, México, Peru, Panama, and the United States.
Its repertoire includes songs from salsa legends such as Gloria Estefan, Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz and Poncho Sanchez, as well Latin twists on popular artists such as The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, and Grover Washington Jr.
The Museum earlier this month announced that with approval from Boulder County, it is inviting members to attend concerts in the Stewart Auditorium. Attendance is limited to 50 members per concert to maintain safe distancing. Members can make reservations for the free shows here.
Safety measures in place for live viewing will include seating attendees in every other row. Three-seats distance also will be required between groups, and no seating will be allowed within 25 feet of the stage.
Members who arrive together can be seated together and must be in their seats by 7:15 p.m. Masks must be worn during the concerts and at all times when visiting the Museum.The concert also will be broadcast live at 7:30 p.m. on the Museum’s Facebook page and via Longmont Public Media.
