The Conservatory of Music in San Juan, Puerto Rico is an elegant and new state-or-the-art music school. We had a music workshop in the morning from the reknowned Willie Rivera, who serves on the faculty and also directs a very accomplished choir called Ars Vocalis. That evening, we gave a joint concert with Ars Vocalis in the the Conservatory concert hall. Both choirs celebrated by having a delicious dinner together after the concert. More spontaneous singing after dinner!!Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (0)
