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

I have no relationship to any of the members of the youth orchestra, but I remembered how much I enjoyed the previous performance, so I went again. As before, I was amazed at how professionally this group of young people performed. And the two soloists, for their very young ages, were quite gifted and capable. For only 36 musicians to render such delightful harmony and to be consistently on target with vastly different and challenging compositions, it was a treat to my ears. I felt privileged to be there in the small but appreciative audience. I have to applaud the gifted and brilliant Director and conductor, Brian Keimath whose love for these kids shows up!!! His narration that led into each piece performed was a treasure to have for greater appreciation of the entire concert. Bravo and kudos to all! I will be there at the Glendale Youth concert.
