Happy soft opening week of Claremont Creative Center!

Thank you to those of you that joined us, in person or online streaming, on Tuesday for our first concert with Polky! With a nod to the Polish community roots by they awesome Canadian group they gave us a truly memorable night. Dancing, community, friends, and music – we are off to the perfect start. Thank you our partners in the Claremont Creative Center project the Claremont Development Authority for being a part of this innovative approach to creative communities development, and to our sponsors for this concert the Union Episcopal Church whose mission of community love is through music, and with support from the Our Kids Commision of the Episcopal Church of New Hampshire who are helping to close the opportunity gap for kids in NH (making music free and accessible for kids). Also a thank you to Clover Meadow for the Beautiful cut flowers arrangement.

We are grateful for your support and we look forward to seeing you at our next concert, which is, TOMORROW!

New Inca Son

Friday, May 10, 2024 @ 6:30 PM
56 Opera House Sq., Claremont NH

The richness of Andean folklore comes alive with New Inca Son, “proud bearer of an indispensable cultural legacy.” (Keith Lockhart, Boston Pops Conductor). Acclaimed in the U.S. and abroad for over 20 years, the group has performed its ancient melodies and dances on world class stages such as the 1994 FIFA World Cup, 1996 and 2002 Olympic Games, and the White House. In 2019, New Inca Son had the honor of headlining at both of our country’s Smithsonian National Museums of the American Indian, NYC and Washington DC locations. In 2015, the band performed at the Kennedy Center for the Arts and the Smithsonian FolkLife Festival, as part of a special tribute to Peru; and at Philadelphia’s Mann Center’s for an audience of over 4000 enthusiastic kids from inner city schools.

New Inca Son is a band with a mission: to preserve its indigenous heritage and to instill, particularly in children and young people, an understanding and appreciation of it. As such, our artists both perform and educate, offering hands-on workshops, interactive concerts, and residencies for students in schools, colleges, libraries, and performing arts centers nationwide. As recognition for its educational work, the band has earned the 2007 “Distinguished Arts Educator in Music” award from the Massachusetts Alliance for Arts Education (MAAE) and 2009 “Gold Star Award,” Mass Cultural Council. Manager Marianne Ruggiero is available to help educators write grant proposals to NEFA toward bringing the group to their schools for activities which connect meaningfully to Music, Dance, Social Studies, World History, and Spanish.
