Sonia De Los Santos
Saturday, September 23, 2017
2:00 pm, UNCW Kenan Auditorium
In 2015 Sonia released her first solo family music album titled Mi Viaje: De Nuevo León to the New York Island (Parents' Choice Foundation Gold Award Winner) a collection of songs that reflect her experiences growing up in Mexico, moving to another country, learning about other cultures, and feeling closer to her own heritage. This unique collection of old and new songs is a personal, and yet universal, musical history from this soulful and important new voice in family music, and the messages of joyful community music making and cultural bridge building inspire and excite children and grownups of all backgrounds.

Alban Elved Dance Company
Saturday, November 5, 2017 
2:00 pm, UNCW Kenan Auditorium
The 'Light of the Water' by choreographer Karola Luettringhaus and musician Perry Smith is an  interdisciplinary performance in dance, film, sculpture, costuming and creative music.  Intriguing imagery, and original physicality  merge with multi cultural sounds played live on a variety of electronic, acoustic and home made water instruments. The piece examines the many aspects of water, its characteristics and  meaning for our lives. The performance format  gives audiences of all ages food for thought and opportunities for participation. Let's go on a journey together and follow water around the globe, from droplet to ocean to deep sea creatures, from splashing, and bathing, to drinking and considerations for environmental stewardship.
