NOVEMBER 10 - 22, 2015

Founded in 1984 by Uruguayan born-American pianist Polly Ferman, the mission of Pan American Musical Art Research (PAMAR) is to promote knowledge and understanding of, and cooperation among the cultures of the Americas through ongoing and dynamic exchanges and the presentation of performances, exhibitions, educational programs, and events in multiple artistic disciplines to new and diverse audiences. PAMAR reaches out to and serves people of all ages, backgrounds, and communities to share and spread an awareness of the richness and value of the culture of Latin America and the Latin American diaspora. This year, it will produce the 10th Annual Latin American Cultural Week (LACW). Started in 2006, the LACW has grown to become a multi-venue festival that takes place each November. LACW's objective is to share the richness of Latin American culture with the broadest cross-section of New Yorkers. Additionally, PAMAR launched a new project in 2014, Shall We Tango NYC, a multi-venue annual tango festival, with participation by groups from several countries that attracted an audience in the thousands and national and international media attention. And once again, PAMAR will continue another of its core programs: ¨A Musical Journey Through Latin America,â€? and its educational program for children and adults.
