Jazz at MOCA Featuring Dante Vargas
“Jazz at MOCA” is MOCA’s free outdoor concert series in-person on the last Friday of every month. On Friday, Sept. 30, MOCA is pleased to present Dante Vargas. He was born in Peru in Trujillo, where he started to explore the infinite world of music as a trumpet player. This would later take him to visit some of the most well-known stages in the world. His professional career started from a very early age in Colombia, a country that welcomed him with open arms and to which he is deeply thankful. Colombia is where he formed his family and professionally got the chance to work with world-renowned artists such as Fruko y sus Tesos, La Sonora Dinamita, El Grupo Gale, Los Titanes, Grupo Niche, El Combo De Las Estrellas, El Tropicombo and many more. Vargas takes pride in being part of their recordings, which he is doing with La Sonora Carruseles, to which he is a producer and musical director.
Jazz at MOCA is free and open to the public. The gallery is open to view MOCA’s current exhibition, “My Name is Maryan,” from 7-10 p.m. with museum admission. Admission to the museum is $10. Admission for students, seniors, and visitors identifying as disabled is $3. Admission is free to MOCA members, children under 12, North Miami residents, city employees, veterans, and caregivers accompanying people who are disabled.
