The Frost School of Music at the University of Miami joins forces with the Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation to pay it forward in the music industry. They are creating a partnership to fund scholarship and educational opportunities for musically talented high school age students of Latin descent.

To launch the initiative, they are also thrilled to announce Latin supergroup CNCO will perform an intimate acoustic benefit concert at UM Gusman Concert Hall on February 8, 2020. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit both the organization’s plans to fund scholarships and provide educational opportunities for aspiring musicians. Opening the concert, and in the spirit of a true partnership, will be a performance by Frost School of Music students and Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation scholars. The performance will feature both original and existing works of high energy Latin jazz and explosive contemporary tunes.

CNCO is a Latin American boy band who won the first season La Banda produced by Simon Cowell. The group is composed of Joel Pimentel, Richard Camacho, Erick Brian Colón, Christopher Vélez, and Zabdiel De Jesús. They released their debut EP, Que Quiénes Somos, on October 11, 2019.
