"Canta Para Todos"
Immanuel Presbyterian Church
3300 Wilshire Boulevard, two blocks west of Vermont in Los Angeles.
Prominent folk music from Venezuela, Cuba, The Dominican Republic, Argentina, Mexico and Colombia will be showcased in Spanish.

Brunner, Ysaye Barnwell and Stephen Hatfield with arrangements by Carlos Abril, Juan-Tony Guzman, Emile Solé, Alberto Grau, and Julian Gomez Giraldo.
The Snake Trio is a refreshing breath of Latin jazz with a cool Venezuelan twist that will have you savoring your Coltraine with Joropo and your Ellington with Calypso. It's music with imagination and talent worth hearing over and over. (Jesse "Chuy" Varele, Music Director, KCSM-FM, San Mateo, CA) For information about The Snake Trio, visit www.thesnaketrio.com.
The Snake Trio will accompany VFLA on several songs. In addition they will perform a short set of their own. The concert will conclude with both groups performing several songs together.
