Spanning 7,000 tropical acres on the south-eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, Casa de Campo hosted Dominican-born musician and two-time Grammy award-winning artist, Juan Luis Guerra and his band 440, on the stage of Altos de Chavon.
The event marks his first return performance to Casa de Campo in 15 years.
The sold out concert welcomed more than 5,000 fans as Guerra performed classic hits including “Bachata Rosa,” “A Pedir Su Mano,” and samples from his newest production, “Todo Tiene Su Hora.”
Proceeds from the performance contributed to the Juan Luis Guerra Foundation, an organisation close to Guerra’s heart that aids children with serious medical conditions and elderly people in need of care.
The concert was the second of the 2015 summer concert series at Casa de Campo.
The resort welcomed famed tenor, Andrea Bocelli back in April.
“This presentation is part of an agenda of artistic events of the highest status that we are preparing, which include very well-known artists of insurmountable calibre.
“We intend on showing everything that Casa de Campo has to offer in terms of entertainment, activities and amenities, something that also positively impacts the Dominican Republic’s reputation as the leading tourism destination in the Caribbean,” said Rafael Torres, president of Casa de Campo, following the concert.
Casa de Campo – a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Legend Collection and The Leading Hotels of the World – attracts financial moguls, politicos and Hollywood’s elite with the offering of spacious hotel rooms, suites and extravagant villas.
The world-class destination is also home to three Pete Dye-designed golf courses, including famed Teeth of the Dog, in addition to Altos de Chavon – an artisan’s village modelled after a 16th century Mediterranean city with boutique shops, museums and a 5,000-seat Grecian-style amphitheatre inaugurated by Frank Sinatra in August 1982.
