Celebrating the festive season, we invite you to a bilingual holiday concert at the Villa Victoria Center for the Arts (VVCA), Navidad en la Villa. Under the masterful conduction of one of El Mundo Boston’s 30 Under 30 rising stars, Lina Gonzalez, the Unitas Ensemble Chamber orchestra will accompany the impassioned voice of Christian Figueroa. Both Figueroa and Gonzalez received Masters from the New England Conservatory; and since then, Figueroa’s smooth tenor has given him the chance to sing to a soldout crowd at Fenway Park, perform with the Boston Modern Orchestra, and earned him the role of Principal Singer at Carnegie Hall, while Gonzalez’s skills have earned her such prominent positions as Assistant Conductor of the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas. Gonzalez founded the Unitas Ensemble, A Boston-based orchestra in 2014 with a mission to celebrate the unique beauty of Latino and Ibero-American arts and culture.
In this uplifting musical collaboration, you are invited to take a trip down memory lame: Figueroa, a native of Puerto Rico, will lead Christmas classics in both Spanish and English that will warm you on this cold December evening.
