Cultural Event: Community Bands in Valencia, Spain

The Festival of the Arts will be holding their first ‘Brown Bag Lunch’ of the festival on Friday, February 3rd at 12:00pm at Artworks. Brown bag lunches originated as a means of conducting employee training during the lunch hour but have since become any opportunity for people to get our of their routine of the day for an hour to nourish the body and mind. In that spirit, Artworks is offering Brown Bag Lunches. Each will be held in the Chemical Bank lower level Gallery at Artworks.

The first speaker will be Dr. Richard Scott Cohen on February 3rd. He will be presenting “Community Bands in Valencia, Spain.” In the Valencia region of Spain there are over 550 “Musical Societies,” which form community bands, orchestras and even choirs in the villages. Scott has many interesting stories to tell from his nearly 25 years of research.
