Arts Matter brings musician to Fort Langley

The second guest expert in the Arts Matters lecture series is musician, vocalist and composer Alex Cuba who will be at the Chief Sepass Theatre on Jan. 29.

The Arts Matter Lecture Series is to bring the arts to the community to celebrate the arts and promote arts education.

Students at Langley Fine Arts School and the community get to hear from experts in various fields of the arts in this lecture series that has been running for four years.

For the Jan. 29 event, they meet Alex Cuba who has two Juno Awards and three Latin Grammys. Cuba, who started out in Cuba before moving to Canada, has four recordings.

Singing Spanish in an English/French nation shaped his music as much as the choice of a home base in Smithers. His work incorporates an array of influences.

His stop in Langley comes shortly before the release of his next recording and the start of his cross Canada tour in the spring.

For tickets, contact the Langley Fine Arts School office at 604-888-3113 (also the number to obtain information) or go online to http://northerntickets.com/events/arts-matter-alex-cuba.
