On Thursday, March 18 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, the CVPA Star Series will present the El Caribe Trio with Jamie Eckert, Lee Dias and Chris Cardaci on steel drums. The El Caribe trio play authentic calypso and soca music from Trinidad. Trinidad-born artist Alison Wells, a long-time friend of El Caribe band members who settled in New Bedford after earning her MFA from UMass Dartmouth CVPA, will kick off the evening. Alison's Caribbean inspired artwork will be projected within the performance space. UMass Dartmouth music students are scheduled to perform during intermission.
