    This year sees the 80 anniversary of the foundation of The Anglo-Portuguese Society. To mark such an important milestone in its history, the Society has been 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 16 th century villancicos and 18 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, Titular Organist at Leiria Cathedral and from 2010 to 2018, João was the principal organist at the Sanctuary of Fatima,. João will also perform some dramatic and virtuoso organ works.

    As well as concerts in some of Portugal's most beautiful and historic buildings, Luís and João have undertaken private commissions and played for public audiences throughout Europe,
    singing in landmark venues such as St. Martin- in-the-Fields, Leipzig's Nikolaikirche, Slovakia's State Opera, the Cathédral de Saint-Louis des Invalides in Paris and the Basilique de St Martin de Tours, and in both North and South America. Most recently João and Luís undertook a series of concerts in Brazil, taking part in the city of Garanhuns' Winter Festival and in Gravatá, where their concert formed part of that city's tenth Concert Series 'Virtuosi'. In October and this coming November EnCanto Contratenores will be undertaking concert tours in France and the Azores.
    During the interval, when a glass of wine will be served, the audience will be entertained by The Fado Duo, guitarists Giorgio Serci and Pedro Velasco, who will also be accompanying
    Luís and João in the latter half of their programme.
