About this event

SRBCC presents {Tres}

{Trés} is a chamber music trio founded in 2010. It started as a collaborative project between José Antonio Zayas Cabán and Colin Young, with the purpose of performing transcriptions for 2 saxophones and piano. The trio has since performed chamber music by a wide range of composers in Central America, the Caribbean, and throughout the United States.

Recently, {Trés} finished a national tour titled A Tribute to Puerto Rico that was partly devoted to help raise funds and awareness about Puerto Rico and the island’s efforts to recover from Hurricanes Irma and María. This has now led to our 2019 project, our first annual multi-week residency in Puerto Rico.

As the recipient of the 2019 New Music USA Project Grant, José will is working with {Trés} on collaborations with composers such as MacArthur and Guggenheim Award recipient Miguel Zenón, Brooklyn-based Angelica Negrón, Illinois-based Carlos Carrillo, and Dublin, Ireland-based Amanda Feery, {Trés} will bring free concerts – that will include new music – to low income communities across the island.

Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center (SRBCC) is a community-based nonprofit organization serving the neighborhood of Hermosa located in Chicago’s northwest side. SRBCC is the longest-standing Puerto Rican cultural center in the city. Established in 1971, it was named in honor of Segundo Ruiz Belvis, the Puerto Rican founder of a secret abolitionist society that bought and freed slave children during Spanish colonial rule.

In that spirit, SRBCC realizes its mission to preserve and promote appreciation of the culture and arts of Puerto Rico, specifically its African heritage.

SRBCC realizes its program philosophy by developing multi-disciplinary programs highlighting the presence of African cultures in Latin America. We utilize dance, music, theater, and other artistic mediums to celebrate Afro-Puerto Rican and Afro-Latino cultural traditions.

In 2007 SRBCC completed the purchase of a 13,000 square feet retail and office space in Chicago’s Hermosa neighborhood. The space, formerly the Karlov Theater, was built in 1925 and includes five retail spaces, two apartments, and a theatre area. SRBCC is proud to announce the completion of stage one of a capital campaign. The funds raised were used for the rehabilitation of the retail areas and the conversion of the former theater into a multipurpose arts space. 

 Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center and After School Matters partner to offer paid apprenticeships to teens (ages 14-18) to learn Traditional Puerto Rican Bomba and Music Video Production. We also offer weekly and monthly percussion classes, live music events, and community workshops.

 SRBCC evolved from a community arts project developed by Association House of Chicago and community activists of the Latin American Defense Organization (LADO). These organizations supported the economic and democratic rights of the Puerto Rican and Latino community of Chicago, focusing on the areas of civic involvement, citizenship, cultural identity, public education, health, safety and security, housing, and economic opportunity.
