Camagüey: Fiesta del Tinajón stages in the Casino Campestre



Camagüey, Dec. 4 - With theoretical events and various artistic performances made in this province, a new edition of the Fiesta del Tinajón, dedicated to the maestro Adalberto Alvarez, will arrive in the millenary capital next December 18 to 22.

The opening gala will be held at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 17 at the Teatro Principal, and will feature the general and artistic direction of Fernando Medrano Vireya, leader of the outstanding Camagua musician-dance ensemble.

One of the peculiarities that this delivery brings is that for the first time the celebration will take place in the Casino Campestre Park and, unlike previous years, there will only be two platforms, one of the socio-cultural institution Project eJo and the central one, in which will present a large part of the artistic talent summoned for the occasion.

To the audience´s delight, proposals will join the Provincial Council of the Performing Arts, the Provincial Center of Music, the Provincial Council of Plastic Arts, the Cuban Association of Artisans and Artists, the Brigade of art instructors José Martí, the artistic education and the system of Cultural Houses.

Based on an original idea by the local musician Adalberto Álvarez, the Fiesta del Tinajón is conceived as an encounter between Camagüey and its Culture. (Dione Ramos / Radio Cadena Agramonte.) (Photos: Archive)
