03 Sep Anabel & Ke o Ke in concert
FUNDarte presents Anabel & Ke o Ke in concert, as part of Miami On Stage Series. Saturday, March 6 at North Beach Open Space Park.
A community’s culture is created by those who live and work there. Miami already has a homegrown, exciting contemporary performing arts scene, but it can only continue to grow if area artists have high-quality, public showcases that expose their talent to South Florida audiences. The new Miami On Stage project will do just that by presenting locally produced work on a regular basis. It will feature some of the best of Miami’s performing artists in a series that takes place in Miami Beach’s North Beach neighborhood, beginning March 6 with a free “tropical fusion” concert by Anabel & Ke o Ke at the North Beach Open Space Park. Miami On Stage is produced by FUNDarte, one of the South Florida’s most adventurous and successful presenters of alternative culture, particularly with a Latin flavor.
