Holiday Pop-Up Concert: Cantaré

Upcoming Event
Sunday, December 9, 2018 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Politics and Prose Bookstore and Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative are teaming up to offer a series of holiday pop-up concerts at P&P’s flagship store throughout the 2018 holiday season. The featured performers all work and live in the D.C. area and represent a variety of musical traditions, including Latin, classical, a cappella, Gospel, and more. These events are part of Washington Performing Arts’ global programming initiative, The World in Our City, which provides perspective on what it means to be a citizen of the world through a unique arts-based lens.

Cantaré Latin American Music performs songs in Spanish and Portuguese, while sharing the music’s cultural background. Cantaré introduces a variety of instruments from different Latin American countries. Audiences learn about geography and history of Latin America and about the different cultures that shaped its music – indigenous, European and African. Cantaré performers Cecilia Esquivel and Dani Cortaza hail from Argentina. They are active performers and music educators in the D.C. area’s music scene, and affiliated with Washington Performing Arts as teaching artists.

Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative is generously supported by Jacqueline Badger Mars and Mars, Incorporated.
