Oscar Nieto workshop and Miguel Ortega CD

Oscar Nieto's workshop is this weekend!

Beginners - if you have at least 4 classes behind you, from any teacher, at any point in your past, and would like a flamenco fix...I can't recommend Oscar enough. There is still room in the 1 hr Intro level class on Friday from 6 - 7. Don't miss your chance to take classes from this incredible teacher.

All levels - if you haven't registered and are planning to attend, please do bring both the registration form and your total fee to the first day you attend the workshop. There is still room for both partial and full workshop participants.

Cante class - Open to all levels. No previous experience necessary. Note that the fee is separate from the workshop fees.

Miguel Ortega CD

Miguel Ortega is an incredible singer from Spain that came to the Calgary International Flamenco Festival in 2013 as the singer with Olga Pericet. He gave a fantastic cante workshop and we were able to buy his CD "Una Mirada Atras" which had just come out. He has released a new CD this year "Amalgama". Silvia Temis in Calgary has arranged to purchase some from him and would like to know if anyone else in Edmonton would like one. The cost is $20.10 (shipping included) and he will sign them before sending. I am collecting the money for her and will arrange for the Edmonton order to be delivered. If you'd like to purchase one, please let me know by Friday and I will make sure you are on the list (janeogilvie at mail dot com). Money must be paid this weekend! (cash only).
