Dayton, Nevada – Kantu Inka will offer an outdoor concert this summer at Community Roots garden center at 209 Dayton Valley Road. The public is invited to this free event on Monday, June 13 from 3pm-4:30pm.

There is no need to RSVP for the concert, which is free and open to everyone, all ages.

Free Andean Pan Flute Lessons for Older Adults This Summer

After the concert, Nevada Arts Council Teaching Artists Carlos Ocampo and Julie Lozada Ocampo of Kantu Inka will offer an opportunity for adults ages 55+ to register for free classes to learn to play the Andean pan pipes, or zampoña.

Participants in the series will receive their own zampoña musical instruments to keep, and will explore Andean music and learn the art of playing the zampoña in an in-person series of Tuesday afternoon classes at the local library mid-June through mid-August this summer.

The series of lessons will conclude with a concert where participants will play their instruments for family and friends they invite.

This activity is made possible by a grant provided by the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies in partnership with E.A. Michelson Philanthropy, and supported in part by the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support comes from Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties and the Dayton Branch Library.
