Music Under the Stars in Benefit of IAMPV


Sunday, March 1, is the date for 'Music Under the Stars', a musical event in benefit of IAMPV, ‘a non-profit, music education institute dedicated to enriching the lives of all of those in the Banderas Bay Area and Mexico.’

The March 1 event will feature all types of music, from Jazz and classical to traditional Mexican music, and even Rock/Pop. Some of IAMPV's students groups will be showcased, including the beginning orchestra, the string quartet, and the Salty Paw Jazz group. There will also be performances by a variety of professional musicians who are affiliated with IAMPV - a classical trio (Klaus Liebetanz, Jean-Guy Comeau and Mary MacLachlan), Patsy Meyer, "Tajin," and a Rock and Roll group playing music for dancing.

Celebrating all of the music of the Bay of Banderas, the 'Music Under the Stars' event will be held at the school's new home, The Gourmet Station, which they share with the University of Guadalajara culinary school. It is located at the N.E. corner of Libramiento and Francisco Villa and has plenty of parking.

Tickets, available at or at the door, are $600 Pesos and include a welcome drink plus pizza. There will also be a cash bar, a 50/50 draw, a silent auction of some local artists' works, and lots of great music for dancing! Come out and have some fun, take a tour of IAMPV's new school, and support music education for the children of Puerto Vallarta.

Event proceeds will help the Institute of Musical Arts finance the educational and musical projects that comprise it, like the Vallarta Symphony Orchestra, Flute Ensemble and the Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra, which is a student Big Band group that has been performing throughout the entire Banderas Bay area.
