Flamenco Quartet Project description
Clinard Dance, now in it’s 19thseason, began their Flamenco Quartet Project in 2014 dedicating the project to artistic excellence and exploration. Led by an open minded spirit of collaboration, The Flamenco Quartet Project, seeks to engage with contemporary culture through vibrant performances that honor traditional flamenco and their shared passion for music and dance discovery. The roster of performers boasts remarkably diverse talents, including composers, arrangers, improvisers and choreographers who bring a range of cultural influences to the group, from Gypsy jazz to klezmer; flamenco and classical Arabic and Spanish art forms. The unique camaraderie within the group retains the intimacy and spontaneity unique to small ensemble work.

The group consists of nationally and internationally renowned artists, including dancer Wendy Clinard, violinist Steve Gibons, vocalist/guitarist Marija Temo, and for this concert, Alice Blumenfeld, flamenco dancer, will join the Quartet.

The group has built a strong base of audience members at home in Pilsen and throughout the US.  Recent venue and festival highlights include Dance St.Louis’ Spring to Dance, Pilsen’s The National Museum of Mexican Fine Arts, Michigan’s Acorn Theater and Colorado’s Vail Performing Arts Center.
