Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic owned food company in the United States presents the Latino Concert Series 2018 Inaugural Concert at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts.

The events marks the return of Salsa, Tropical Pop, and Bolero Superstar JERRY RIVERA performing Salsa with Love! on Saturday, February 10th, 2018 at 8pm. Opening for Jerry Rivera will be the New York based Latin band FUNK SALSA URBAN.

“I am thrilled with a sponsorship relationship between Goya Foods and Lehman Center for the Performing Arts. There is a natural alignment between us, given Goya Foods’ unparalled position in the Latino food industry and the largest, Hispanic-owned food company in the United States and Lehman Center’s reputation as a leading presenter of Latino music in the Bronx, Northern Manhattan, Westchester County, and beyond” states Eva Bornstein, Executive Director.

“Through its Latino Series, Lehman Center has brought iconic performers to the Bronx for more than a decade, showcasing top artists such as Willie Colón, Johnny Pacheco, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Eddie Palmieri, Prince Royce, Jose Alberto, as well as the late Celia Cruz and Tito Puente. The Forever Freestyle and Parranda Navideña concerts are perrenial sellouts. In addition, Lehman Cener always features the greatest symphonic music and dance companies from Latin America. The Latino community can be found at every show in the Center’s 30 event season, not just for the Latino Series. Goya Foods support will make it possible for the Latino Series to grow and continue to atttract large audiences for many years to come!”

The four-time Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum-selling singer Jerry Rivera, one of the biggest musical acts in the world, will perform his Salsa Romantica hits such as “Amores Como el Nuestro”, “Casi Un Hechizo”, “Ese”, and “Qué Hay De Malo?”.
