INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY CONCERT CELEBRATIONMarch 8 @ 5:30 pm
La Pena Cultural Center
$10 Adv, $12 Door
Las Alma’s, Mujeres Taller Bomba y Plena, and Yeye Suarez, are collaborating on a musical concert dedicated to celebrating International Women’s Day. In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for Women’s Rights. This community concert will occur alongside thousands of events that will take place world-wide to recognize, encourage, and advocate for women’s rights in all walks of life.
This all female performance will feature original music by members of the cast as well as renditions of songs composed by other women from Latin America and the Caribbean. It is an opportunity for women musicians to perform seldom-heard works by women composers and to celebrate the essential role of women in the arts and in particular, the field of music.
Come sing, dance and enjoy this family event in honor of women!
