CES at Frostburg State University

CES at Frostburg State University presents Cuban songstress Dayme Arocena in a special afternoon performance on Sunday, April 29 at 2:15 p.m. in the Lyric Theatre on 20 E. Main Street in Frostburg, Maryland. The club-style event includes table and bar service and a menu of appetizers and desserts. A pre-performance brunch buffet option at The Gin Mill on 17 W. Main Street in Frostburg begins at noon. A native of Havana, Dayme Arocena has emerged as one of the brightest young voices in Cuban music, with a dynamic blend of West African, Cuban, bebop, soul and jazz traditions. National Public Radio praised her prodigious musicianship while also noting "an irrepressible personality that projects warmth and fun, not to mention a million-watt smile." The New York Times agreed: "When she sang, she had a beaming, irrepressible smile, the expression of a virtuoso who knew she was pushing each song toward gleefully unexpected places." Immediately following the performance, CES joins forces with Frostburg State University's own WFWM-FM to present the Offstage Series With WFWM, when station director Chuck Dicken joins the artists onstage for a lively interactive discussion with the audience. Prior to the performance, patrons may opt to attend a noon brunch buffet at The Gin Mill in the newly restored Hotel Gunter. The cost of brunch is $24 per person. Performance tickets are $22 for adults and $19.80 for youth under 17. Member and group discount rates are also available. Tickets may be ordered online by visiting http://ces.frostburg.edu or by calling 1-866-849-9237 or 301-687-3137. The box office is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The engagement of Dayme Arocena is funded in part by a Southern Exposure grant from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Cultural Events Series is supported in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council. On the web at msac.org. CES is sponsored in part by the City of Frostburg, and by the Allegany Arts Council with funds from the Maryland State Arts Council.
