Hispanic Heritage Festival Event 

September 24-26, 2021

West Palm Beach, FL 

The Palm Beach Atlantic University Hispanic Heritage Festival is a celebration of the Iberian-American cultural heritage through a display of art, music, and poetry from various countries.  The festival was envisioned and organized by Dr. Estibaliz Gastesi and Dr. Márcio Bezerra 12 years ago as a way to commemorate their 10th year living and performing in Palm Beach County. 
This year, the festival will have a conference format to include papers, poster presentations, lecture-recitals, and performances, all relating to the subject of concert music written by composers of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula. The festival will feature concerts of new and historic music, including music influenced by Latin idioms written by non-Latin composers. See our past performers
