CONCHITA ESPINOSA CONSERVATORY OF THE ARTS IS PRESENTING ITS 2010 FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS and this is very special.
Miami, FL- (May 14, 2010). On Saturday, June 5th at 7:00 p.m. Conchita Espinosa Conservatory of the Arts will be presenting its “2010 Festival of the Arts” at the Miami-Dade County Auditorium. This performance, which takes place every two years with over 500 students participating, has become a very dear tradition since its founder, Cuban educator Conchita Espinosa, presented the first Festival in Havana in 1934 as a way to showcase, in a single performance, the many talents of her Conservatory’s young artists.
Part One of “Festival 2010” focuses on a trip through the cultural highlights of New York City. The “visit” comes to life through theatre, dance and music. Part Two is a celebration of Broadway musicals. Since the early 1960s, “Festival” has been a labor of love in which faculty and staff of both, the Conservatory and the Conchita Espinosa Academy (CEA) participate. Each Festival is a unique performance with its own theme, and from start to finish, the hard work, and dedication of the Conservatory’s outstanding faculty of renowned artists is evident in every number.

The Conchita standard is to present highly artistic, seamless performances that bring culture and entertainment for all ages and show the school’s love and respect for the arts, which are an integral part of every student’s education at CEA.
