Thursday September 4, 2014 – We kick off Copper Fest with an evening of contagious rhythm with the Afro-Cuban rock band, Síntesis. Internationally renowned for its unique sound that fuses rock, African melodies with the sensibility and poetry of Cuban trova. There will be an opening night reception immediately following the performance.

Saturday September 6, 2014 DanzAbierta, one of the preeminent modern dance companies of Cuba, will be performing Showroom (2012) created by choreographer and dancer Susana Pous.

Thank you so very much for your wonderful support, and don’t forget to get your tickets before we sell out, if you are unable to make the event we will make great use of the tickets by filling the seat with an underprivileged person or as a gift to one of our visiting artists.
I hope that you will join me and help support the important mission of creating dialogue through the arts! #copperfest
