THE ANGLO-PORTUGUESE SOCIETY'S 80th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT
at St Paul's Church Covent Garden
THURSDAY 22 NOVEMBER 2018
This year sees the 80th anniversary of the foundation of The Anglo-Portuguese Society. To mark such an important milestone in its history, the Society is organising a series of events throughout the year. This November the Society is delighted to be hosting a concert of Portuguese, Iberian and Latin-American classical and traditional music.
EnCanto Contratenores will offer a taste of the wonderful tradition of Portuguese and Iberian music which has crossed continents and travelled down centuries - from 16th century villancicos and 18th century arias and sonatas to protest songs, traditional songs and fado. Every facet of history and human life will be on show in this diverse and exhilarating programme.
Luís Peças from Portugal and Brazilian João Paulo Ferreira, will be performing with João Santos. João Santos is the Titular Organist at Leiria Cathedral and from 2010 to 2018 was the principal organist at the Sanctuary of Fatima. João will also perform some dramatic and virtuoso organ works.
