MARIPOSA / BUTTERFLY - An Inspirational flight!
The name of my presentation is Mariposa / Butterfly - An Inspirational flight! It is about my life, my profession as a pianist as music director and about my creations as cultural entrepreneur.
I will be talking about inspiration, endurance, creativity, intuition, emotions, positivism, and the ability of falling and getting up stronger each time.
It will be a life story that aims to share the importance of discovering our love for the Arts and how to make it the Soul of our life. To discover the importance of generosity with our colleagues as opposite to competition. It is my intention to talk, share and guide if requested by participants in the audience, my long-life experience in the Arts and as a Human being.
