Following in the footsteps of legendary Cuban orchestras Los Van Van, the Buena Vista Social Club and Irakere, the Afro-Cuban All Stars is one of the best-known and most successful Cuban orchestras performing today. Conducted by Juan De Marcos González, the orchestra is comprised of three generations of and alumni of Cuba’s greatest bands.

For this Big Deal three winners will receive two tickets to see the All Stars perform in the festive atmosphere of Annette Strauss Square on March 5. Whether you pack up the picnic basket or plan to check out the Southwest Porch for munchies, this event is BYOB!

Also up for the Big Deal this week are tickets to see Jesse Cook at the Granada Theater and Command Performance Gala at the Winpsear Opera House. But to win any Big Deal you must first be signed up as an Art&Seek e-newsletter subscriber. If you’re not a subscriber you can take care of that here.

UPDATE: We have our winners. Thanks for playing and don’t forget to come back and check out the Big Deals next week!
