    Music Ed Fest 2017
    Santo Domingo, July 18th 2017.

    On Thursday, July 27th in the auditorium of the Universidad Nacional Pedro Henríquez Ureña (UNPHU), the first edition of Music Ed Fest 2017 will be celebrated. The day will be filled with free musical workshops from recognized local and international musicians.

    Music Ed Fest is a festival which combines live presentations from musical groups and professional music teachers, accompanied by clinics that include training on the rhythms and terms of different musical genres (such as Jazz, among others).

    The festival, organized by students of music, young people interested in music, and the general public, will be free for all attendees. The day will begin with registration of participants at 9:00 a.m. Each of the five clinics offered during the day will last around 50 minutes, and end in an informal jam session.

    This year, Dr. Bill Sando from Indianapolis will give a workshop on Jazz in America; pianist Pavel Polanco-Safadit will offer a clinic on Latin and Afro-Cuban Jazz; recognized percussionists Miguel Montas and Luis Mojica will hold a workshop on Dominican popular percussion; Gioel Martin and his group will hold a clinic about the expressive language of Gagá and Palo music; and Josean Jacobo will speak about Afro-Dominican Jazz.

    This newfound initiative came about due to the joint work that the Presbyterian Church of Indianapolis and the Iglesia Evangélica Dominicana (Dominican Evangelical Church) began to do on various projects. The prestigious Dr. Bill Sando and famed international musician Pavel Polanco-Safadit have worked for the past two years with talented Dominican youths in musical clinics and camps located in Baní and Santo Domingo.

    This year, for the first time since this joint initiative began, four distinguished Dominican youths were chosen for a visit to Earlham College in Indianapolis. They will have the opportunity to experience ten days of university life in the United States, and attend classes along with other students of music.

    Music Ed Fest is supported by the UNPHU, the Dominican Fiesta Hotel & Casino, the Presbytery of Whitewater Valley, the Second Presbyterian Church, Dr. Abraham Polanco-Safadit, the Iglesia Evangélica Dominicana, Witherspoon Presbyterian Church, Sando-Aker Plastic Surgery Group, Direct Contact, One on One, Jazz en Dominicana, and Ron Veleiro.
