NYFOS continues its Mainstage season with Gracias a la vida, a musical tour of South America, with songs from Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Chile, on Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at 8:00 p.m. at Merkin Hall. The program features Ecuadorian tenor César Andrés Parreño and Bolivian soprano Shelén Hughes, with Steven Blier as pianist and host.
“I’ve been enjoying a love affair with South American music for many decades. What a joy to delve into this music with these two brilliant young artists. Shelén Hughes and César Andrés Parreño bring these songs to life with the kind of fresh beauty you dream of, as well as an authentic command of Latin American style.” — Steven Blier
