Stamford, CT | Added on April 29, 2013 At 05:48 PM











Stamford’s INTAKE organization (Instrumentally Native Taking on the Classics) will celebrate its second anniversary with a concert Sunday, May 5 at St. John’s Episcopal Church. Over 40 artists will present dance and musical performances from their regions. Musical genres will range from the classics to popular Latin American Music.

“When I was a student at the University of Connecticut, I was inspired by my teachers and mentors to strengthen my community through a classical music disciple and through native instruments that were relevant to us and our families,” said Angelica Durrell, founder and artistic director of INTAKE.

The celebration will feature the Mariachi Academy of Connecticut; Stamford’s Grupo Quetzal, a Guatemala Ballet; GueteAmala Folk Dance: Asoven Rhythm and Folklore of Venezuela; and students from INTAKE’S ALTA program through Stamford’s Public Schools.

INTAKE will also introduce and announce its new Board members including Norwalk Mayor Richard Moccia; classical dancer Maureen Pavia; Lisa Petno, President of the Norwalk Youth Symphony; and Stephen Perry from Xerox Corporation.  

The concert will take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and doors will open at 2 p.m. St.. John’s Episcopal Church is located at 628 Main Street in Stamford.
