Our partnership with Providence’s FirstWorks continues in April, when we’ll be sponsoring a student workshop with the education team from Jazz at Lincoln Center, the educational branch of Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Musicians from JALC will perform with and lead a workshop for QMS Jazz Ensemble students and select students from the QMS Band.
We are delighted to partner with Providence’s FirstWorks to bring world-class artists to QMS for student learning workshops. In March, we’ll be sponsoring a workshop organized for select 8th grade theater/performance students with renowned flamenco dancer Soledad Barrio and members of the award-winning Noche Flamenca.
Flamenco is an artistic expression that has its roots in Andalusia in southern Spain, fusing song (cante), dance (baile)and musicianship (toque). Under the direction of Martín Santangelo, Noche Flamenca has become Spain’s most successful touring company. Hailed by critics everywhere for its transcendent and deeply emotional performances, Noche Flamenca is recognized as the most authentic flamenco touring company in the field today. Formed in 1993 by Santangelo and his “Bessie” (The New York Dance and Performance Awards) award-winning wife, Soledad Barrio, the company regularly tours around the globe with performances in New York City, Europe, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Egypt, the US, Canada, and Australia.
