FREE Hispanic Heritage Month Concert, Panel Discussion and Tour

 As always, Hispanic Heritage Month has special significance at The Woodlawn Cemetery, as we once again celebrate one of the brightest stars to find her final resting place in the Bronx.

Friends of Woodlawn is proud to present Azucar! Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Celia Cruz with The Bronx Music Heritage Center, Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education, and City Lore.

Please join us Sunday, October 9, at 1:00 p.m., for a FREE event honoring the legacy of The Queen of Salsa, whose timeless work continues to have a major impact on jazz, pop culture and Latin music worldwide.

 Program includes:
 • Panel discussion on the life and influence of Ms. Cruz organized by preeminent City Lore folklorist Elena Martinez and moderated by Grammy-nominated musician Bobby Sanabria
 • Selection of Ms. Cruz’s music performed by students from The Celia Cruz High School of Music
 • Guided visit to the Cruz mausoleum, La Guarachera de Cuba’s final resting place.

 Come celebrate and learn about the legacy of Latin music icon Celia Cruz!

The event will take place in the Woolworth Chapel, just inside the Jerome Avenue entrance.
