La Septima Alianza - Summer of Music Series

You are invited to bring your blanket and lawn chair to hear the great entertainment in MAC's 2020 Summer of Music concerts. Concerts are from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on the south outdoor terrace (on corner of 11th Street and 14th Avenue) of Monroe Arts Center. Please see below for outdoor viewing guidelines. This concert is FREE and open to the public. La Séptima Alianza is the fourth of five concerts in the 2020 Summer of Music concerts. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, La Séptima Alianza is back by popular demand. Having played at MAC last summer, their lively music is characterized by its fresh and modern take on Latin tropical and regional Mexican music. They play a variety of music such as Cumbia (folkloric rhythm and dance from Colombia), Norteña (Mexican music from Northern Mexico), Quebradita (a Mexican dancing and music style), and Zapateada (dance styles of Mexico, with a lively rhythm punctuated by the striking of the dancer's shoes). The group's director, remarks, "We do not want to focus on just one kind of music, because our Latino community is very diverse in musical tastes."
