“Justo” Speak Spanish

The Justo Lamas Experience
Submitted by Jan Coone

Recently, I took my students to the concert of Edgar Rene, a young inspirational Puerto Rican singer with the Justo Lamas Group.  This company has offered these concerts for 12 years in North Platte. The students love it and look forward to it every year and they learn a lot from the songs.

The Justo Lamas Group Concerts is looking for more locations in Nebraska for late October 2019. The JLG Program is an educational and inspiring program promoting the study of the Spanish language through music. Students enjoy learning the songs ahead of time (all songs and lyrics are available on the website), singing along and participating in the interactive activities at the concert. The concert lasts about 90 minutes and students may stay after for photos and autographs.

Concerts may be hosted by schools or Educational Service Units as long as the auditorium has a stage and will hold 200-300 students. Justo Lamas Group works with the school or ESU to reserve a date, and provides planning materials. The host location only needs to provide some supervision, and help with a seating chart. JLG takes care of all the reservations and billing of the schools. Scholarships are available to schools who do not have the funds needed for student tickets.

I helped host the concert in North Platte with ESU #16 starting 12 years ago until North Platte High School  took over about 7 years ago.  Please feel free to contact me for more information as well: Jan Coone, jcoone@mac.com.
