Flamenco concert to be held at NY Mills cultural center
A Danza Espanola flamenco concert will be held on Sunday, April 3 at 3 p.m. at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center.
This program brings the trilogy of traditional flamenco - dance, guitar and song - together for a magical afternoon of pure flamenco. Special guest singers La Conja and Vicente Griego from New York City and Albuquerque will share the powerful flamenco singing that is the foundation of the flamenco art form. Flamenco singing is so difficult and unique it is rarely heard in the Midwest.
Joined with the heart-pounding footwork and graceful movements of leading dancer Deborah Elias and Colette Illarde and the soulful chords of guitarist Trevor May, the program will present flamenco from the most serious cante jondo (deep song), to the light-hearted cante chico. This program will give audiences an exceptional opportunity to experience the strength and beauty of traditional flamenco in its full glory.
This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund.
Tickets for the concert are $12 advance sale and $15 day of the concert and may be reserved by telephone at 218-385-3339. Links to the Danza Espanola website can be found at www.kulcher.org.
