Noches Tropicales / Tropical Nights
The Noches Tropicales 2012-2013 concert season will feature an array of music artists and musical genres that will soon be announced. Target will sponsor the Noches Tropicales concerts at Tropical Park on Oct. 19, Dec. 7, Feb. 8 and April 5. The season includes a new “Noches Tropicales/Tropical Nights” concert series sponsored by the Knight Foundation, offering an expanded concert line-up at these venues/dates: Oak Grove Park, Nov. 9; Country Village Park, Jan. 18; and Goulds Park, March 1. Now in its seventh year, Noches Tropicales, inaugurated by Miami-Dade County Commissioner, Sen. Javier D. Souto, has showcased more than 20 evening concerts at Tropical Park that have included traditional Cuban contemporary music and zarzuelas, Argentinean tango, Brazilian Jazz, and a Spanish-language version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. More than 40,000 patrons have attended Noches Tropicales concerts over the years. In September Miami-Dade Parks kicked off its free “Noches Tropicales” 2012/2013 concert season with a Latin Jazz gala at the Miami-Dade County Auditorium that featured Grammy award-winning and nominated artists Joan Cartwright, Nicole Yarling, Carlos Averhoff, Kiki Sanchez, Elaine Hernandez, Andy Harlow, Niki Orta, Reinier Guerra, and Daniel Berroa. The gala and the expanded concert line-up was made possible by a $100,000 grant from the Knight Foundation to expand the Noches Tropicales concert series from its home base at Tropical Park to other venues throughout the County. The 2012-2013 Noches Tropicales concert series also received a $75,000 grant from Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT). The grant is part of Target’s ongoing efforts to build strong, safe and healthy communities across the country. These efforts include Target’s long history of giving 5 percent of its income to communities, which today equals more than $3 million every week. As part of this commitment, Target is on track to give $1 billion for education by the end of 2015 to help kids learn, schools teach and parents and caring adults engage. To date Target has provided more than $300,000 in cultural grant funds in support of Noches Tropicales. For more information on Noches Tropicales/Tropical Nights, call 305-271-0812.
