Clearwater, FL, February 28, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology founder and humanitarian once said, “A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists,” and with that, the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater has been committed to supporting artists since its opening in 2015. Since then the Center has hosted over 150 cultural and educational events.
This weekend was no different when Mr. Ruben Celiberti, international singer, dancer and pianist; musical performers and dancers living in the Tampa Bay community performed in the historical Clearwater Building, now home of the Scientology Information Center.
Celiberti told the story of his artistic beginnings through the performance of an array of diverse songs, tango and dramatic dance to a packed audience.
In the concert Celiberti portrayed learning to play the toy piano given to him by his father, the “ballet school” created at home by Celiberti and his sister Patricia, and their musical family gatherings with cousins and uncles.
“Siblings, Lavette and Samuel Jones from the Patel Conservatory gracefully portrayed the Celiberti ‘ballet class,’ and tenor Diego Iglesia from Argentina performed as his uncle, ‘Coco’,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Information Center. “It was a rich musical celebration at a whole new level of aesthetics with surprise talent in the audience from Venezuela and Israel who joined in.
"It brought to life a statement once made by Mr. Ron Hubbard about life and the arts where he said, ‘The greatest joy there is in life is creating. Splurge on it!’.”
One attendee, Shaun, remarked after the show, “This performance was beyond my imagination! My friend and I decided to come and check out the show, and I am so glad we did. It was spectacular!”
Another guest, Ben, said “Wow! This was amazing! I grew up in the Latin community and used to hear this type of music all the time! It brought back memories.”
In addition to showcasing artists and cultural and community activities, the Information Center contains audio-visual displays covering the principles of Scientology, the life of Mr. Ron Hubbard and the on-going humanitarian programs the Church sponsors. Since its opening in 2015, over 37,000 people have toured the Center.
