Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra - Salsa

Friday, July 26, at 7:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra - Latin, Salsa


We are so excited that WSO is coming back to AotL and the Summer Concerts. Their past visits were sensational; their appearances had two of the largest audiences we have ever had. Based in Brooklyn but with their musicians' roots in Puerto Rico and South America, WSO imparts its infectious energy to all.  


The Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is a thrilling large salsa group which plays dynamic, dura arrangements of indie rock tunes we love. No bananas in the hair; this is innovative, astonishing salsa with a new, vibrant aesthetic. With an ever-evolving set list that includes songs by Arcade Fire, TV On The Radio, Spoon, M83, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Black Keys, and many more, the WSO has taken the typical salsa form and infused it with a completely modern identity. The explosive arrangements have established the band as a groundbreaking force in the New York underground, and has led to international acclaim for its completely new approach to the genre. 


The WSO has been featured recently at TEDx Bushwick, New Year’s Eve 2014 at The Kennedy Center, in Rolling Stone Magazine (on the Latin Hot List), and on MTV Iggy, Telemundo, Univision, and on the nationally syndicated program LatiNation on Fox. Recent shows include Blue Note Jazz Festival at B.B.Kings 42nd Street, The Brooklyn Bowl, SOBs (Sounds of Brazil), The Tribeca Performing Arts Center, Subrosa, Musikfest PA, and many more.



Our Summer Concert Series in July concerts are generally offered on a pay-as-you-wish basis and take place on the Boyd Family Concert Lawn aside Lake Carmel.


All concerts in this July series are on Fridays and start at 7 PM. Concerts are rain or shine and may be held indoors if it is severe weather.


Lawn chairs, food and drink are welcome. Limited refreshments will be available on site. Parking is limited so we suggest arriving at least 20 minutes before the concert.


All these events are made possible by the many local business sponsors who support us, so we ask that you support their endeavors.


Email for any questions or call 845 228 2685.


These concerts are made possible by our supporters and in part through the Putnam Arts Council's Arts Link Grant Program with Public Funds provided from the Putnam Count and through the New York State Council on the Arts with support from the Governor's office and the NY State Legislature.


We are grateful to the staff of the Putnam Arts Council for their excellence in supporting the arts throughout Putnam County.


Most of all we are grateful to the sponsors who make these concerts possible.  Please support their business.
