Hi Albert:

I am a parent/trustee at Seacoast Academy, a new (2nd year of
operations) indendent middle school located between Exeter and
Hampton Falls. Our 6th, 7th and 8th graders all study Spanish,
it is a full course in our curriculum, and we have several
fabulous teachers offering different levels of instruction, as
some students are advanced, some beginners. We serve students
throughout the tri-state seacoast area, and I believe we are
the only middle school-centric independent school in the tri-
state area, -- and the only middle school making such a
significant commitment to foreign language instruction for all
students.

I am writing to inquire about whether and how we might get word
out to your group members, about the school in general, but
more immediately, to invite them to a community arts and
entertainment benefit event at the school this coming Sat., May
9, from 6:30 to 10:30 pm, when we are hosting a salsa party.
I am including a write-up below, in case you are able to use
the details, but would be glad to know if there is some other
way you can recommend I contact your group. Thank you very
much for your assistance.

Grupo Fantasia, 2009 Best Latin Group winner at the 4th Annual
Urban Music Awards held in Boston last week, will be performing
at ?Viva La Fiesta! -- a ?friendraiser? we are hosting, in a
heated tent under the stars on the grounds of Liberty Farm.

Angel Wagner, master percussionist and musical director of
Grupo Fantasia, and 3 other members of the high energy salsa
band will be entertaining guests and pulling them to the dance
floor with a unique and irresistible blend of rhythms and
vocals. Wagner, who is originally from the Dominican Republic,
plays more than 30 instruments, including many that are
original, handmade, and indigenous. Dedicated not only to
entertaining audiences all over the Northeast and beyond, Grupo
Fantasia also runs educational programs for schools and
universities, and their web site includes a pictorial of dozens
of exotic percussion instruments, with names like ?Agogo
Bells,? ?Afuche/Cabasa,? ?Tube Shekere,? and ?Merengue Guiros.?

?Viva La Fiesta! also will feature fajitas and other tempting
Latin cuisine from Muddy River Smokehouse, and a cash bar
offering Mexican margaritas, beer, and wine. Live and silent
auctions will offer a treasure trove of services and
merchandise donated by local businesses, as well as a ?Shake
Your Maraca? contest to win special prizes. Many of these
items will be showcased in Seacoast Academy?s schoolhouse,
along with one-of-a-kind art work created for the event by
students in the Academy?s Visual Arts and after-school
enrichment programs, offering guests an opportunity to tour the
school?s classrooms and facilities. Most of the school?s
faculty, trustees, and parents will be in attendance, with over
150 tickets already booked.

?Viva La Fiesta! tickets ($40 per person) are available by
calling Seacoast Academy at [masked]. Proceeds will
benefit the students, faculty and curriculum initiatives at the
school, which is a registered non-profit educational
organization. Organizers say they hope the party will also be
a celebration of the school?s support from and growing role in
the tri-state seacoast community.
