2018 Flamenco Certamen USA Finalists
Each year Certamen Finalists are chosen based on their ability to prepare for and perform a solo accompanied by live music at the Bruno Walter Auditorium at the Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts. Leading up to the competition, Finalists are provided with live musicians, free studio space and sessions with a mentor from the professional flamenco community. Cash and other prizes are awarded.
Previous Certamen Finalists have gone on to form their own companies, produce their own shows, perform with Flamenco Vivo II, and to teach in our arts education programs. All Certamen participants receive ongoing support and access to workshops, professional development and performance opportunities from Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana.
