Buenos Días, My name is Sally Ramirez and Annette Ramos encouraged me to introduce myself to you.
My guitarist & music historian, Doug Robinson, and I present a program to enlighten members of the mainstream community on the subject of Latino cultural diversity.
Latin and World Music: A Journey in Song celebrates the music and composers of various countries in Latin America, including Brazil, Chile, the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe and Spain. We share with our listeners the wonderful music of great composers like Baden Powell, Vinicius de Moraes, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Violeta Parra, Rafael Hernández and Wilkins Vélez.
We perform this music with all original arrangements and interweave our own personal compositions and experiences into the mix.
We love this amazing music and it is an honor and joy to share it!
Attached are a couple of songs from our new CD in the works, "Mar Y Sal/Sea and Salt" (links are below for apple format).
Contigo by Spanish artist: Rosana and Alfonsina y el Mar by Ariel Ramirez. ¡Qué Disfrúten! Sally
Music is a great way to bring the world together. When we open our eyes to the unique beauty of each and every culture, we see ourselves more clearly.
This is great opportunity to showcase our Latino/a Youth.
Everyone is welcome to audition and join us for the performance on July 28th @ 7:30pm @ MuCCC Theater 142 Atlantic Ave.
Free & Family Friendly.
The planning for the 5th Annual Walk Against Domestic Violence is underway! We will be walking on August 20th at 9 am from the Maplewood Rose Garden Park area back to the park for a celebration. This walk has generated tremendous local media and community attention because the message is so critical – domestic violence brings utter devastation to families – especially, to the children who witness violence in their homes.
This walk is truly a grassroots effort and to make it possible for everyone to join, participation is free. Last year, we had over 300 who registered and walked! As an activist, I seek the support of the community to help bring awareness, information, and a light of hope at the end of the tunnel to suffering families. I know firsthand that domestic violence is no joke, as I am a survivor of such harmful actions.
I am writing today to ask for your participation and sponsorship. We need help paying for T-shirts, promotional items, permits, food, water bottles, chair and tent rentals, door prizes, balloons and more. Because of your sponsorship, we will promote your business in our marketing efforts. We’d also like to give tribute to sponsors by awarding diplomas and trophies. These awards can be displayed at your business to show your support for victims, survivors and children impacted by domestic violence.
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of sponsorship this year. Please contact me before July 7th, 2016 -- no amount is too little and the sky is the limit! If you have any questions, please contact me directly at 595.490.6294 or at email@example.com

Good afternoon La Cumbre Members!
Congratulations on an outstanding success with our Spring Renewal Event! There was an excellent turnout of members and supporters, even a surprise or two: Rochester's Mayor Lovely attended, as did local business people and many from our community at large, REOC, and the media. A resounding GRACIAS!!! to all who gave time and effort to make our Spring Renewal excellent and successful! It takes the efforts of many to produce an Event of this kind and the entire community benefits. The crowning achievement of the evening was the brainstorming and idea sharing of issues important to all in the community and is an incredible step towards focusing our collective efforts to the betterment of the Rochester Hispanic community. Ideas are great! but it takes committed people to implement good ideas and realize results. So thank you to the many who volunteered to lead and participate in pursuing the ideas to fruition. The next steps will include compiling results and to document in a report suitable for sharing with everyone.
In our next General Assembly, we will discuss some of these results. Please attend!!!
A Goto Meeting Call-In number will be assigned as we get closer to the meeting.
If you have not already, please RSVP to email@example.com.
