Community Show this Sunday!

Hope to see everyone this Sunday May 26th! Don’t miss out on the Flamenco Society of Edmonton’s second annual Community Show, featuring local flamenco dancers, singers, and musicians!

My intermediate class will be performing por Soleá with guest singer Susan MacGregor. My advanced class will be performing por Alegrías with guest singer Irena Dumicz and Cat Moores on palmas. Calgary guitarist David Matyas is the invited guest for the show.
