SPECIAL CONCERT AND WORKSHOP WITH MAESTRO HARPIST ALBERTO DE LA ROSA AND TLEN-HUICANI



BREAKING NEWS! AN OCCTAC SPECIAL EVENT ON AUGUST 29TH, 2007 FROM 6 -9 PM.

MAESTRO ALBERTO DE LA ROSA AND HIS GROUP TLEN HUICANI FROM VERACRUZ, JALAPA, WILL VISIT THE OC CHILDREN'S THERAPEUTIC ARTS CENTER TO CONDUCT A SPECIAL WORKSHOP AND JAM SESSION WITH OUR HARP STUDENTS.

"From the capital city of Veracruz, Jalapa, Tlen-Huicani (pronounced wee-KAH-ne) is one of the most faithful interpreters of the traditional folk music of that state and also that of much of Latin America.
Tlen-Huicani, which means "the singers" in the indigenous Indian language of Nahuatl, has taken the beautiful "harpa jarocha" or folk harp, and has made it the centerpiece of their music.
Founded in 1973, the group was named best folk group in Mexico by the union of music and theater critics. Group director, Alberto de la Rosa, is one of the most respected musicians in all of Mexico, and is considered among the most outstanding folk harpists in the world. In 2003 the group celebrated another landmark, when they completed 30 years of unforgettable music. With all the many types of music the group has mastered, a program of Tlen-Huicani is like taking a musical journey through Mexico and South America."


WE NEED MORE HARPS FOR ALL THE STUDENTS CURRENTLY ON THE WAITING LIST WHO WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM AND TLEN HUICANI WILL PLAY TO HELP US RAISE FUNDS.
