Education : Children from the AMIS (Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies) Young Readers program visit P&G Headquarters
Posted by admin on 2009/4/2 7:50:00 (1833 reads)

On Thursday, April 2nd, children from the AMIS Young Readers program visited P&G Headquarters.

The Young Readers, administered by the LULAC National Educational Service Centers , encourages children to make reading a life-long habit. At each site, thirty first, second and third graders meet weekly for six weeks during the summer with a reading teacher in a program designed to make reading fun. Reading sessions are enhanced by trips to the movie theater, the museum and the newspaper printing press. Games, treats and prizes help turn an educational experience into a fun summertime activity kids look forward to week after week.

LNESC has twenty Young Readers programs nationwide.   P&G is a very strong supporter.  Last year they donated $70,000 and thanks to their support, we now  have two Young Readers programs in Cincinnati - one at AMIS, and another one at  Price Hills.

Led by the legendary Juan de Marcos González (of the Buena Vista Social Club), the powerhouse Afro-Cuban All Stars perform a variety of styles including classic son montuno, contemporary timba, swinging big band, Afro-Cuban jazz, and more. The exuberant 16-piece big band has sparked a worldwide infatuation with the diversity and vitality of Cuban culture. These stars will have you dancing in the aisles!

The performance in Cincinnati was fantastic. The band played classic Cuban tunes, as well as modern Salsa, and original compositions by Juan de Marcos, among them one dedicated to his wife.  While all the musicians were fantastic, the favorite of the audience was piano player, Ignacio "Nachito" Herrera, who mesmerized everybody with his virtuoso skills and his passion and sense of humor on the keyboard.


The after party was at Via Vite Restaurant on the Fountain Square, where the owner of the restaurant and the management showed a true Cincinnati-style hospitality to the band members!
