Flamenco Festival 2014 After Party!

As a small thank you to our Supporter-level members ($100+) we held a Stars of Flamenco Member’s After Party at Tapeo Restaurant and Tapas Bar on Newbury Street. The party kicked off the first night of Stars of Flamenco, this years’ World Music/CRASHarts Flamenco Festival (followed up be an incredible performace by Tomatito on March 16).

The event was held in the downstairs of Tapeo (a Spanish tapas bar).  The brightly hued ceramics, paintings of flamenco dancers, and Spanish spices highlighted the night’s theme and experience, providing a great backdrop for this fun Saturday night. Our guests were welcomed with delicious house sangria and a variety of Spanish tapas were served in the customary shared setting.

In the tradition of tapas and the “Tapeo” experience—good conversation is a must and Saturday night was no exception.  Members, staff, performers, and guests all shared food, wine, and great conversations about flamenco, music and much more!

Thanks to all who attended the Stars of Flamenco Member Reception!  We’re looking forward to future gatherings with World Music/CRASHarts Members!

We were super fortunate to have 11 of the Flamenco performers join us at the after party! Pictured above is one of the amazing Flamenco performers, Jesus Carmona.  His solo performance at the concert was definitely a crowd favorite!
