President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will honor Hispanic Heritage month by hosting a celebration of Hispanic musical heritage, called "In Performance at the White House: Fiesta Latina," the White House announced today.

The concert, which will be held next Tuesday, October 13th, will be the latest installment of the White House Music Series. It will feature artists such as Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan, Chicano rock band Los Lobos, and comedian George Lopez. Latin American chef Maricel Presilla will be a guest chef for the event.

The event will take place on the South Lawn of the White House, and will be streamed live on the White House Web site. It will be broadcast nationwide on public TV stations the following Thursday, October 15th, and on Telemundo the following Sunday. In addition, it will be aired on V-Me, a Spanish public network, on Christmas Day.

This concert follows other musical events the first family has hosted at the White House on jazz and country music over the summer. In November, there will be a classical music celebration.
