CMS Presents Explore Music! SPAIN on Feb. 12
St. Louis Cultural Flamenco Society

The Community Music School at Webster University presents Explore Music! SPAIN on Sunday, Feb. 12, from 12:30-3 p.m., at the East Academic Building. The event will share the history of Spanish and Flamenco dance, Flamenco music and dance, Spanish cuisine and cultural activities and crafts. Admission is free.

Flamenco has been described both as a way of life and a fusion of cultures, as expressed through music, dance, and song. Its roots are in the multiple cultures of South Spain. 

The St. Louis Cultural Flamenco Society will be our guide on our journey to Spain, with these guest artists:

  • Marcos Jimenez, internationally known Flamenco artist, native of Seville, Spain
  • Liliana De La Caridad Fagoaga, native of Cuba, trained in all three forms of Spanish dance
  • Esther Pardo from Murcia, Spain, danced as a soloist and principal roles in Spain, Cuba, France and Germany
  • Edwin Suarez from Colombia, studied and share the stage with great artists from Spain
  • Macarena Jurado De Heras, native of Seville, started singing Flamenco and the Copla at a very early age, performs around Spain, Portugal, France and the U.S.
