West End Mambo to perform free concert on Aug. 15

WINSTON-SALEMThe Summer Parks Concert Series will feature West End Mambo at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 15, at Tanglewood Park. Attendees can expect a show with a “fiery mix of classic salsa from bolero and rumbas to guaracha and son montuno.”

The concert is part of the sixth annual Summer Parks Concert Series presented by Forsyth County Government and Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County. Gates open at 4 p.m., and the concert will take place at 5 p.m. The concert and parking are free.

“This season, Arts Council is focused on the relief, recovery, and revitalization of our community,” said Chase Law, president and CEO of Arts Council. “When you attend events such as the Summer Parks Concert Series, you help local artists such as West End Mambo thrive as an ensemble. We are fortunate to have outdoor venues such as Tanglewood Park to gather together and enjoy live music.”

The featured Arts Partner for this event is The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem.

“The relationship between Arts Council and The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem, which spans more than five decades, has had a huge impact on our community,” said Philip Powell, executive director of The Little Theatre. “In addition to advocating for the arts, Arts Council provides performance venues that would otherwise be unaffordable for smaller arts organizations, like ourselves. Partnering with Arts Council at large public events such as the Summer Parks Concert Series is a wonderful opportunity for us to promote our shows, classes, and services, while providing a little fun for the community.”

The featured community partner for this event is Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County. Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. 

Additional series partners include Publix Super Markets Charities, Best of Winston, WFDD, WSNC, WTOB, WXII and Yes! Weekly. Beverage sponsors include Foothills Brewing, Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery, and R.H. Barringer Distributing Co.
