Special opportunity for the first five schools making reservations: For only $50 additional to the cost of the admission tickets for your group, we can make arrangements for local flamenco guitarist, composer, recording artist and performer Maria Zemantauski to visit your school to prepare the students to see this performance. Her lecture/conversation entitled
"What is Flamenco?" will
examine the three elements of flamenco: cante (song), baile (dance) and toque (guitar playing). Flamenco will also be contextualized as a dynamic, multi-faceted art form in which the sociocultural issues surrounding it are essential to understanding both the repertoire and its performers.
