Ideias do Levante – Cultural Association of Lagoa (Algarve), in partnership with the Municipality of Lagoa (Algarve), will organize, on the 7th of November 2020, at 21:00, in the Carlos do Carmo Auditorium (Lagoa), the ninth edition of the Oriental Dance art show, entitled “The Magic of 1001 Nights”. The show will bring together the class of Graciete Jesuíno (teacher and choreographer of Oriental Dance at Ideias do Levante) and some special guests. According to the organization, this show, designed by Gabriela Sharifa, includes a large component of amateurism, since the dancers on stage will be mostly amateurs and / or newcomers in this art. However, the organization stresses that the public will be surprised and pleased with the performance of the dancers. Roberto Estorninho, president of Ideias do Levante, welcomes all the work that has been developed not only by Graciete Jesuíno, but also by all the dancers and other members involved in the production of this show.

Coral Ideias do Levante (Lagoa, Algarve) was founded in 1996. Initially conducted by conductor Ricardo Carvalho, it is in January 1998, under the artistic direction of prof. José Carlos Bago d’Uva that the group starts to work based on a renewed concept of “pedagogy of choral singing”. The Choir, during its existence, was directed by Francisco Brazão (2003-2016) and Maria Saramago (2012). He performed in several points of the Iberian Peninsula and organizes several events throughout the year, especially the Coral Week of Lagoa. Coral Ideias do Levante aims at the technical and artistic progression of the group, and parallel cultural promotion of the Municipality of Lagoa and the Region through polyphonic choral music. It interprets a very eclectic repertoire as a means of pedagogical intervention and audience formation.

We are proud to present Dell’Acqua, featuring Carla Pontes (soprano, www.carlapontes.info), Grace Borgan (Flute), and Cristiana Silva (Piano). The three talented musicians and Coral Ideias do Levante (conducted by Vera Batista) will interpret works by John Rutter, Georg Friedrich Händel, Camille Saint-Saëns, among others. This free entrance concert is recommended for adults and children over 6 years old. The church seats 250 people.
