Sesiones Desde La Loma, created by former co-leader of the salsa orchestra NG2 Norberto Vélez, began as an entertaining musical concept for the video. From his “casita” on a hilltop in Hatillo, Puerto Rico, Vélez performed with a range of musical guests for a highly successful YouTube series. Later, Vélez brought together several artists to the delight of thousands attending his first live concert in Puerto Rico. Now, Sesiones De La Loma travels to New York City for the first time in an exclusive event for Lehman Center. It will feature the nephew of famed singer Ismail Rivera Moncho Rivera, The Showman José Alberto “El Canario,” troubadour at heart Omar Santiago, former lead singer for Spanish Harlem Orchestra Jeremy Bosch, and of course, Norberto Vélez with his orchestra directly from Puerto Rico!
In part, Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, Inc. is supported by public funds through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council and the Bronx Delegation. Additional funding is provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with support from the office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. We are thrilled that Goya Foods has agreed to renew its sponsorship this season, which will help expand its Lehman Center’s reach to the community. In addition, we have secured funding from the Howard Gillman Foundation to help grow our programming. The 2023-2024 season is also possible through sponsorships by Con Edison, Havana Café, Friends of Lehman Center, and our cherished audience members.
