ANN ARBOR, MI – As the theme, Solidaridad implies, the 11th Annual Latin@ Culture Show seeks to unite the campus community and greater Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti community at large by celebrating Latino culture through different musical and theatrical performances. The Latin@ Culture Show will feature demographically and ethnically diverse performances ranging from music, dance, song, spoken word, and even theater. In addition to the vast amount of student talent that will showcased, there will also be live performances by the Alberto Rojo Trio, featuring Grammy award winning artist Alberto Rojo, as well as University of Michigan Associate Professor of Music Michael Gould. The 11th annual Latin@ Culture Show core intends to build this year’s production on the grounds of Solidarity, hence the theme, Solidaridad. Our goal is to create the space and opportunity for the Latin@ community at the University of Michigan to work as a collective in an attempt to educate others about one of our many identities. In doing this, we hope to further contribute to the ongoing efforts of the University of Michigan to diversify the perspectives of its staff, faculty and students, to build cross-cultural partnerships and coalitions and to, in turn, elevate the campus community as a whole.
The 11th Annual Latin@ Culture Show will be held on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in the Michigan League located on 911 N. University Avenue in Ann Arbor, MI. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the show will begin at 7:00pm. Pre-sale tickets are $7 and can be purchased at the Michigan Union Ticket Office [MUTO] on 503 S. State Street.
