Alberto Prieto Calixto (known as Trabanco on the forum) has told me that there is another Asturian Conference (Xornaes Asturianes or Jornadas Asturianas) being planned for the upcoming Saint Patrick's Day weekend.

The Xornaes Asturianes will be in NYC at Pace University again and is under the leadership of Andres Villagrá. The parade will be on Monday, March 17, 2008 at 11 am, but the conference will be on the weekend before.

The details are still being worked out but I think we can assume that there will be something involving the gaita (since an Asturian band is supposed to be coming) and something involving Asturian culture, perhaps short film or music.

Mark your calendars now and plan to join in this celebration of Asturian culture!

Alberto Prieto Calixto (conocida como Trabanco en el foro) me ha dicho que hay las segundas Xornaes Asturianes (o Jornadas Asturianas) en planificación para la próxima fin de semana de San Patricio.

Las Xornaes Asturianes se ubicarán en NYC en la Universidad de Pace y están dirigido por Andrés Villagrá. El desfile será el lunes, 17 de marzo, 2008 a las 11 horas, pero la conferencia será en el fin de semana antes.

Los detalles están aún en vías de elaboración, pero creo que podemos asumir que haya algo de la gaita (ya que una banda de gaites asturiana va a actuar en el desfile) y algo de la cultura asturiana, tal vez sobre la cortometraje o la música.

¡Marque tu calendario ahora y haz planes para asistir esta celebración de la cultura asturiana!

Update: I'm sorry to say that Alberto believes that the planning for the conference appears has not proceeded as hoped, so there will not be conference in NYC this spring.

But that does make it easier to attend the parade in Washington, DC!

There is also a possibility we'll hold a conference in May in Florida:

(Our conferences are like sightings of Elvis or Bigfoot.)

Actualización: Lo siento decir que Alberto cree que aparece que no ha procedido el planeamiento para la conferencia como esperamos, entonces no habrá una conferencia en NYC este primavera.

¡Pero eso lo hace más fácil asistir al desfile en Washington, DC.!
