The Orfeon San Juan Bautista, a professional 33 mixed-voice choral ensemble from Puerto Rico, performs at Blessed Sacrament Church, NYC. The ensemble's diverse repertoire spans the sacred and secular compositions of the great European choral traditions, as well as Latin American traditional and folkloric music.

The ensemble is taking part in its NYC Concert tour. They will be performing at 4 p.m. November 20 at the Spence School and at 4:30 p.m. November 21 at St. Patrick's Cathedral, both in Manhattan. Both performances are free and open to the public. Take advantage and enjoy quality music for free.

I attended last night's performance at Blessed Sacrament. Que orgullo boricua. I was at peace listening to their beautiful voices.

I especially enjoyed their performance of "Puerto Rico" (author Roberto Cole) and "Piel canela" (author Bobby Capo). Pues claro.

I'm glad I went.
