PIFA (Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts)

I have some very exciting news to share with everyone which I'm super excited about. Thanks to Leonard Jacobs, a fellow-blogger, who runs the very successful "Clyde Fitch Report," I'll be writing about PIFA (Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts), a first-time 25-day arts festival of 135 events with 1,500 artists happening April 7-May 1 in 125 venues throughout Philadelphia. Themed around Paris, circa 1910-1920, PIFA will feature music, dance, fashion, fine arts, poetry, cuisine and more—all generously flavored with the essence of Paris: 1910-1920. Thank you Leonard for recommended me. I'm very appreciative of your kindness!

So in the coming weeks I will be posting more interviews than usual mixing in some of the artists/performers participating in this festival that I've been fortunate enough to interview. They are artists from the world of theater, dance, opera, chamber orchestra, and the circus all from the Philadelphia area.

What makes these interviews so exciting is that I've been given the opportunity to feature artists and performers I would not have normally been exposed to. After interviewing everyone, I'm am beyond thrilled to be able to bring them and their talents to you!

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed interviewing them. If you would like to help ensure that PIFA becomes an annual event please Like their Facebook Page and Follow them on Twitter. Please help support Leonard, PIFA, and all of these amazing artists/performers who are giving so much of their time to this festival!

Stay tuned as "Adaumbelle's Quest" explores the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts through May 1, with PIFA's support.
