Dr. Ortiz presents bilingual, virtual musical puppet performances


CLEVELAND, Nov. 16, 2020: Dr. Raquel M. Ortiz, launches “Sofi’s Magical Adventure”, a 25-minute bilingual musical puppet performance based on her bilingual children’s picture book Sofi and the Magic, Musical Mural. 


Join Sofi exploring public art, imagination, and the Puerto Rican cultural tradition of Carnival as she visits beautiful places on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico and gets to know the carnival character, vejigante. Sing along, in Spanish and English, (and maybe even dance) to bouncy plena music created by four-time Grammy nominated composer William Cepeda.  


DATES: Nov. 19th at 10am, Nov. 21st at 1pm, Dec. 16th at 10am, Dec. 18th at 1pm, & Dec. 19th *in person for Julia De Burgos Christmas Event “Parrandon Navideño”* 


“Promoting family literacy is instrumental in educating and empowering our communities”. Ortiz says. “Through books and music that represent our people we celebrate our culture, share our history, and cultivate future generations of storytellers. And, we make reading, fun, dynamic and accessible.” 


The production of “Sofi’s Magical Adventure” was made possible thanks to a generous MAEF Cleveland Foundation grant and the support of Julia De Burgos Cultural Center, Cleveland Public Library, Arte Publico Press, Esperanza Inc., The Music Settlement and The Center for Puerto Rican Studies.
