The Entertainment Series of Irving opens its new season with the “Habaneros,” an energetic ensemble group from Cuba on their debut tour of the United States. Classically trained, this group of five performers is part of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. They will delight you with the sights and sounds of their homeland. And, as you immerse yourself in their beautiful and vibrant music, breathtaking imagery of Havana will be displayed on screen to give you a real appreciation of the culture that makes this group so special. The concert will be held October 6th at 7:30pm in Carpenter Hall, 3333 N. MacArthur, in Irving Texas. Tickets for this performance are $21.50. Tickets are available at www.irvingartscenter.com/performances/buytickets or by calling 972-252-ARTS (2787). This performance is funded in part by the City of Irving through the Irving Arts Board.
Along with the performance by the Habaneros, the Entertainment Series will also present the art of Jorge Narey Fernandez, a Cuban born artist now living in this area. Fernandez has demonstrated an ability in art since an early age. After leaving Cuba with his family, he continued on his path as a budding artist. He continued his education in Florida, completing a graduate program in International Business and Marketing, though he never lost his interest in art. And after visiting the areas of the Mediterranean in the Aegean Sea including Italy, Croatia, Greece and Turkey, he was even more inspired to share his artistic visions, and these experiences influences his work today. Some of his works will be on display in the lobby of Carpenter hall at 6pm on October 6th. They will be available to view prior to and after the “Habaneros” performance.
A fundraising raffle and auction will be held in the lobby as well, prior to the performance. Come early to get a look at the many wonderful raffle and auction items available.
