Illinois State University’s Brown Ballroom will resound with Latin rhythms as Los Pinguos takes the stage on Sunday, Sept. 25, at 3 p.m. Tickets at the door will be $8 for general admission and $5 for faculty, staff and students.

Advance tickets are available by calling the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts at (309) 434-2777 or by visiting www.artsblooming.org. A limited number of tickets will also be available for sale in residence hall lobbies and outside Watterson Dining Commons beginning Sept. 19, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. and from 5-7 p.m.

Emerging from the clubs of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Los Pinguos came to the U.S. a decade ago. Discovered by a talent scout while playing in a Los Angeles club, the band became the first winners of Ed McMahon’s televised talent competition, The Next Big Star. They have since released five CDs, toured the world and had their music featured in numerous TV and film scores. Visit http://www.lospinguos.com/ for more information about the band.

The concert is sponsored by Illinois State University Housing Services, the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts and Illinois State’s Latin American and Latino Studies Program.
