Music In Homes: Orquesta La Inspiracion

Garden Concert

It’s no wonder our annual Latin Jazz World Music concert is a favorite. Orquesta La Inspiracion, founded by Puerto Rican congera Ozzie Rivera and under the musical direction of pianist Bill Meyer, is a large ensemble of some of the Detroit area’s most talented and knowledgeable Latin musicians. La Inspiracion features a hot horn section led by saxophonist Chris Kaercher, explosive percussions driven by top Latin musicians including Ozzie, well respected Latino bassist Eddie Caraballo, and soulful vocals, including the charismatic, dynamic team of Armando Vega and Dulce Checkler. The rhythms of salsa, merengue, cumbia and Afro-Caribbean jazz are sure to entice the audience to dance and sway out of their seats, and on a star-filled evening the lawn will be the dance floor. Festivities are held in a tent in a beautiful Palmer Woods ­garden, with a very tasty Latin-style meal served during intermission.
