Below you will find a message from the VIEQUES CONCERT SOCIETY which I received.

I encourage you to support this initiative.

Happy Holidays,

Santiago F. Lampón

=======================================================

Dear friend:

In the true spirit of giving and celebration that is synonymous with the year-end holiday season, the Vivace Handbell Ensemble will bring its world-renowned act to the W Retreat and Spa – Vieques Island on December 28th at 7:30PM for a very special performance to benefit the Vieques Concert Society, a new non-profit organization established to provide the children of Vieques with music programs, training and access to instruments.

This intimate live holiday concert will be the first in what will become a series of events that will help raise funds for the Vieques Concert Society.  In addition to the evening’s performance, the ensemble will offer a special presentation for the Vieques Municipal Band earlier in the day to demonstrate their instruments and meet with the performers.

Also, a string workshop will take place the prior day by cellist Rodrigo Correa-Salas for the children of Vieques.

Vivace is the concert choir of the Coro Polifónico Juvenil de Campanas (Youth Polyphonic Handbell Choir) from Aibonito, Puerto Rico.  Recognized as one of the best handbell ensembles in Puerto Rico and Latin America, they have recently performed a number of celebrated performances around the world.

For more information on the Vieques Concert Society or for tickets to the December 28th concert, which start at $25 for general admission and $150 for benefactor tickets that include a post-performance cocktail reception please call 787-413-2450 or visit www.viequesconcertsociety.org. Please take a look at our site read about our first two workshops for the children next month.

We thank you in advance for your support and look forward to seeing you on December 28th.

Best,
