Los Angeles' Herencia Flamenca has earned a reputation as one of the West Coast's leading flamenco ensembles, blending a respect for the roots of flamenco with innovative style. The company puts on a show with performers representing flamenco traditions from across Spain, including two very talented and very different dancers originally from Barcelona: company co-founder Yolanda Arroyo and veteran performer Dolores Gimenez, making her U.S. debut after decades of success as a dancer and choreographer in Spain. The company's other co-founder, guitarist Paco Arroyo, hails from Cordoba, while guitarist Vicente Gelo comes from Seville, and singer Sonia Berbel and guitarist Fernando Mejias were both born in Madrid. All these and more will unite for a show that embodies the soul of flamenco, both elegant and explosive. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
He was born in a mill town on the outskirts of Boston, yet he became one of the most celebrated musicians in modern history. He was known primarily as a composer and conductor, yet he also received the television industry’s most prestigious honor, the Emmy Award, on 11 occasions. And although his work has long been revered by the sage and wizened luminaries of his profession, his most treasured gifts may well have been those he bestowed upon the youth of the world.
His name was Leonard Bernstein.
The Towne Singers, La Canada’s internationally acclaimed chorus, will celebrate the life and music of Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story, Candide) with a program entitled “Bernstein Story.” The program will also mark the inaugural appearance of the Towne Singers’ new musical director, Dr. Mark Aaron Humphrey, who joined the group in January 2007. Humphrey feels that “this unique journey through the life of Bernstein will be unlike any concert people have experienced, with a combination of choral and orchestral music, dance, and film.”
In addition, the show will feature dancers from the Mojalet Dance Collective.
