Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall :: 4544 N. Lincoln Ave. Free ticketed event. $5 suggested donation. BOX OFFICE: 773.728.6000 In 2011, SRBCC began the avant-garde and innovative project CAPRE — Chicago's first Afro-Puerto Rican Orchestra. There are very few Bomba and Plena orchestras in Puerto Rico and abroad and most of them have fused these genres with the Salsa sound and orchestration and other Latin-American rhythms. CAPRE's innovative musical concept and sound goes beyond anything else ever produced. This ensemble is under the leadership of new musical and artistic director, Bomba and Plena elder Jorge Emmanuelli Náter of HERMANOS EMMANUELLI NÁTER. Be ready for the true evolution of Bomba and Plena using familiar elements of genres like jazz, blues, rock, gospel, West African, and more, while the ancestral rhythms and songs of the island stand strong as the driving force of this new and historically innovative Boricua musical concept.
