January Lecture: Flamenco in Albuquerque, Presented with the Cervantes Institute
January 5 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm presents Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series at La Quinta
Introducing the Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series at La Quinta, occurring monthly. Named in honor of Dr. Rembe, who passed away this spring, and inspired by his love of Los Poblanos, his curiosity, intelligence and community relations, this series aims to celebrate his legacy by promoting stimulating conversations rooted in the core values and mission of Los Poblanos. The lecture series is also a nod to the rich history of La Quinta Cultural Center of the 1930s and 1940s, when the Simms family held lectures and events that promoted the arts. As we work to preserve La Quinta as an important architectural landmark, we also aim to emulate its dynamic programming through our own curated events and experiences. Join us for a culturally rich day at La Quinta by joining us for afternoon tea before the evening lecture.
January lecture is presented in partnership with the Cervantes Institute, an international non-profit organization focused on celebrating Spanish language and culture with a strong presence in Albuquerque. Join us as we dive into the world of Flamenco in Albuquerque, a tradition with roots here dating back hundreds of years. A short introduction will put in context the significance of flamenco in our city, followed by a performance that demonstrates the beauty of this renowned artform. Featured partners, presenters and musicians include Silvia Rodríguez Grijalba (Executive Director, Instituto Cervantes de Albuquerque), Mario Febres (flamenco guitar player), Giovanna Hinojosa (teacher at the Conservatory of Flamenco Arts) and Vincente Griego (flameco singer).
Please plan to arrive at La Quinta 15 minutes before the start of the lecture to check in. Light beverage offerings will be available for purchase.
