128 American Alley
was envisioned, conceived, and has thrived since 2002 in Sonoma County, California, now celebrating 20 years! Presenting the collaborative efforts of the Bay Area’s finest Flamenco Singers, Guitarists and Dancers, and supporting local Flamenco students, dreamers, and talents, our goal has been to present top-notch instruction and performances. Phoebe Vernier “La Fibi” has brought decades of artistry and energy to the public for the purpose of sharing the music, song and dance, the treasure of Southern Spain. Whether in the classroom, formal theater or in a casual setting, the respect, purity, and integrity of this traditional, yet living and evolving art form is always foremost.
New in 2023!
This performance is underwritten by the generous support of “The Circle of Sponsors”, a group of flamenco art supporters from Sonoma County, California and Nationwide that believe in the power of local art to heal and inspire our community and world. Thank you, Sponsors!
