“This is the Arts at Clarke Series’ third
cultural celebration event – Night in India in 2014, Night in Ireland in 2015,
and this year’s Night in Spain. The Clarke ensembles have performed
beautifully, the guest artists have been outstanding and the food, of course,
is always delicious. Our goal is to provide the audience with an educational
opportunity – to learn about the sights, sounds and tastes of a culture unlike
our own. These events have been very well received by our Clarke community, as
well as the greater Dubuque area. We are looking forward to another fantastic
event in October,” said Megan Stull, Arts at Clarke committee member.
