Both New Swing Sextet and MetaMovements are sad to announce that the entire band will not be able to travel for the March 2019 Fiesta Del Tambor Travel Program. A key member of the band has been injured, requiring surgery and then rest during the month of March to prevent any further injury. We have had a wonderful experience during the planning phase of this collaboration -- and are looking forward to when we will see it come to fruition. We will keep you up to date on that as New Swing determines their upcoming travel schedule.

However, the trip is still on!

Co-director George Rodriguez and the Lead Singer Orlando Ortiz will be travelling with a group of enthusiastic dancers and musicians. They are happy to have their supporters joining them on the program this time around... and are looking forward to returning with those who are excited to join us for the next opportunity. We'll be making sure to share information on facebook -- photos, videos, and more -- so those who cannot make it this time can join in on this historic moment!
