It’s the first major concert since the pandemic closed campuses last year and restricted public access to facilities. This Thursday, March 25, Del Mar College’s Music Department presents Solero Flamenco, Houston’s premier Flamenco performance company, for a free concert where the audience can experience the heart, soul and skill of the ensemble’s performers.

The FREE concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in Richardson Performance Hall, which is located on the East Campus at Baldwin and Ayers. Although admission is free at the door on a first-come first-served basis, seating is limited due to following the College’s COVID-19 protocols that include required social distancing and wearing face masks or coverings.

Known for their vibrant performances that encompass artistic integrity and trademark passion, Thursday’s Solero Flamenco concert will feature soulful song, enchanting guitar and exhilarating dance all converging into a highly improvised art form to merge traditional, contemporary and original works.

Under the artistic direction of Irma La Paloma (cante) and Del Mar College alumnus Jeremías García (guitarra), Solero Flamenco maintains an active performance calendar and enjoys collaborating with local and international artists. Since 2009 the co-founders have directed, produced and performed in theater productions as part of the Cultural and Fine Arts Calendar at University of Houston Clear Lake and San Jacinto College South.

As founders and directors of the Houston Spanish and Flamenco Festival in collaboration with San Jacinto College and the Consulate General of Spain in Houston, Solero Flamenco promotes flamenco arts, education and culture.
