‘Encuentro Flamenco’ Concert to be Held at Brookhaven Lab, October 12
Upton, NY – The U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory will hold a concert called “Encuentro Flamenco” at the Laboratory’s Berkner Hall on Sunday, October 12, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The concert, which is open to the public, features the Sol y Sombra Spanish Dance Company and their special guest, classical Indian dancer Arti Datta. All visitors to the Laboratory age 16 and older must bring a photo ID.
Founded in 1984 by Maria Loreta, the Sol y Sombra Dance Company is a not-for-profit company composed of nationally recognized professionals in the field of Spanish dance and music. The company has served as a vehicle for an educational and aesthetic appreciation of Hispanic culture throughout the New York metropolitan area and beyond.
“Encuentro Flamenco,” or “Exploring Flamenco,” will explore the fascinating roots of Flamenco in the Indian, Arabic, Latin American and Spanish music and dance traditions. The program is made possible, in part, with funding from the Suffolk County Office of Cultural Affairs and a decentralization grant from the New York State Arts Council as administered in Suffolk County by the Huntington Arts Council.
Tickets for the concert, which cost $10 for adults and $5 for children under 10 years old, must be purchased in advance; no tickets will be sold at the door. To order tickets by mail, send your ticket request, a stamped, self-addressed envelope, and a check payable to BERA to: Brookhaven National Laboratory, BERA Sales Office, Bldg. 488, Berkner Hall, Upton, NY 11973-5000.
