Saturday, November 13, 2021 (7:30 PM - 9:30 PM) (EST)
Hailing from Puerto Rico by way of Richmond, orchestra leader Maurice Sanabria-Ortiz and “Kadencia” share the rhythmic sounds of the island’s traditional “bomba y plena” forms and other Latin forms like salsa. The group will perform with a hearty brass section and plenty of percussion on Saturday, November 13, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students.
The PVCC Visual Arts Department will host perennial favorite “Let There Be Light” as a showcase of light-based art installations on the PVCC campus, as in years past, on Friday, December 10, from 6 to 9 p.m. Additionally, the exhibition will expand, illuminating locations in and around Charlottesville on the following night, Saturday, December 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. This event is free of charge.
The season also features performances by the PVCC Theatre and PVCC Music Departments along with an array of other free events such as local documentarian Ty Cooper’s filmmaking workshop, art exhibitions and opening receptions, popular movie screenings and more. All events, other than Saturday night’s Let There Be Light exhibition, will take place in the V. Earl Dickinson Building, located at the south end of 501 College Drive on the PVCC Main Campus.
