ST. MAARTEN (May 18, 2011)- The fourth "Arts in the Plaza" united more than 300 music and arts enthusiasts on Wednesday, May 4, 2011. What has become a sought after tradition since January 2011, locals and international travelers celebrated an array of extraordinary artists from St Martin, the Caribbean and the world.
Dynamic performers at the "Arts in the Plaza" included Connis & Associates (image above), guitarist Dr. Rock, Emmanuelle Arisi's fire dancers, and Sax Mix with Connis and The Miro Borthers (DJ Ra & DJ Jayson Miro).
