South Outdoor Terrace

Groupo La Séptima Alianza


You are invited to spend the evening at Monroe Arts Center for the third 11/14 Summer of Music concert. The concert is from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on the south outdoor terrace (on corner of 11th Street and 14th Avenue) of Monroe Arts Center. The concert is FREE and open to the public.

Enjoy the sound of Madison’s own Groupo La Séptima Alianza. Their music is characterized by its fresh and modern take on Latin tropical and regional Mexican music. They play a variety of music such as Cumbia (folkloric rhythm and dance from Colombia), Norteña (Mexican music from Northern Mexico), Quebradita (a Mexican dancing and music style), and Zapateada (dance styles of Mexico, with a lively rhythm punctuated by the striking of the dancer's shoes). Omar Miranda, the group’s director, remarks, “We do not want to focus on just one kind of music, because our Latino community is very diverse in musical tastes.”

It was in 2016 that this group of friends decided they wanted to form a band. The current band members are Antonio Flores (vocals), Juan Damaso (Guiro percussion), Joaquín (drums, vocal), Francisco Xelhua (bass guitar), Jorge Luis Rios (keyboard, vocals), and Omar Miranda (percussion).

Omar reflects,“our philosophy of life is to always be busy making art to take out all the stress of the weekly work. We love playing good music, to have fun, and entertain people...”

In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be presented in MAC's Gunderson Stiles Concert Hall.
