The Casa de la Música will have an attractive artistic program every night during the ten days of the XXV International Book Fair Santo Domingo 2023 (FILSD) for the closing of the literary and cultural days. The Ministry of Culture informed that outstanding soloists would liven up the fair atmosphere in the Sala de Encuentros in the Juan Lockward bar of the Eduardo Brito National Theater.

Among books, poetry, conferences, colloquiums, talks, and narratives, music could not be missing in this edition of FILSD 2023, which will take place in the Plaza de la Cultura Juan Pablo Duarte from Thursday, August 23 to Sunday, September 3.
