FIRST FRIDAY Music Series @ Galeria West with Harpist Enki Semiramis in concert
Hundreds of music lovers have enjoyed the FIRST FRIDAY Music Series concerts, presented by TEATRO Si at the intimate Galeria West Art Gallery, located at 111 Quimby Street in downtown Westfield, NJ. This once a month live concert event continues to bring to the area a unique opportunity to enjoy a diversity of music genres as performed by a select series of acclaimed artists.
The FIRST FRIDAY events continue on Friday, April 1, 2011 at 7pm when dynamic harp soloist Enki Semiramis brings to the First Friday music concert series audience an evening of Latin American favorites and more.
A native of Colombia, Ms. Semiramis is characterized by her own musical style, always in an unconditional search for the recondite secrets of the harp and its melodies along with her respectful sense of musical ethics. She is an outstanding interpreter of the music from the Colombian plains and her musical aptitudes have their basis in her dedication and love for her instrument. Her efforts to make true a dream of accomplishing virtuosity in the performance of chosen pieces, satisfying the most demanding musical taste, takes us through different musical latitudes while allowing novelty and variety.
After getting involved with the cuatro (4 string instrument) and the maracas in 2003, she started her "Arpa Llanera" (Venezuelan harp) studies under the direction of Hildo Ariel Aguirre Daza at the Llano and Joropo Academy in Bogota ,Colombia. Enki Semiramis is a young talented artist who seeks to promote the "Arpa Llanera" as a solo interpreter. She possesses a selected repertory of music from different countries in Latin America and Europe, with emphasis in Colombian and Venezuelan folklore. Her in demand musical skills have allowed her to offer recent concerts performances on several stages in Colombian and United States including the Teatro Pedro de Heredia in Cartagena, Colombia, Miami Dade College and the Hotel Intercontinental in Dallas, Texas among others.
We hope you will join us often during the year to celebrate the arts in a unique setting. We recommend that you consider enjoying a fine meal before or after the concert at one of the fine eateries in quaint downtown Westfield and the surrounding area. Most are located within a short walk from the gallery. Proceeds from each event benefit theatrical programming efforts at TEATRO Si, a 501(c) 3 New Jersey not for profit corporation.
