Studio Mangiameli Student Performance followed by Spanish Guitar Duo featuring Chiara Mangiameli
A native Italian, Chiara Mangiameli's background in theater along with her training in flamenco, have made her a sought after performer and teacher in Chicago and the midwest. A graduate of The Theater School at De Paul University, Ms. Mangiameli returned to the stage in 2012 after a more than fifteen year absence as celebrity chef Rick Bayless's leading lady in the ground breaking production of "Cascabel" at the Lookingglass Theater.
Founder and Artistic Director of Studio Mangiameli since 2011, she has lived and studied flamenco in Spain with some of the masters of this art form. In addition to teaching a full schedule of classes at her studio, Chiara collaborates with some of Chicago's most critically acclaimed groups including Las Guitarras De España, Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater and Chicago Sinfonietta.
