Art songs at La Casa

Photo op La Casa -- La Casa De La Herencia Cultural Puertorriquena, Inc. (The Puerto Rican Cultural Heritage House, Inc.) in East Harlem at 1230 Fifth Avenue is a not-for-profit cultural and educational institution founded in 1981. The cultural heritage of Puerto Ricans/Latin Americans is archived for all to share. La Casa also holds cultural events. In late March, “Art Songs by Classical Composers from Puerto Rico” was showcased. In this photo, director Leticia Rodriguez, at center, poses for a photo with the artists. That day audience members were treated to a live performance by Dominican-American mezzo soprano Anna Tonna and Cuban pianist Daniel Daroca performed songs by Puerto Rican composers from the past and present. – Ismael Nunez
