The Puerto Rican Cultural Society of Dayton in association with Victoria Theatre Association presented an evening with Conjunto Criollo on Sunday, Oct 15th. The event was a part of Hispanic Heritage Month. Conjunto Criollo is one of Puerto Rico’s most traditional music groups whose origin emerged in the mountains of Puerto Rico. The group is a musical ensemble of 12-15 members who began performing in 2004 at the University of Puerto Rico. The group’s originator is Professor Orlando Laureano.

It was an evening of beautiful ballads such as "Mi Patria Querida", classics such as "Viejo San Juan", and their signature songs from the mountains of Puerto Rico. Professor Orlando Laureano also shared with us the background of many of the songs, and explained the instruments used, e.g. Tiple.
