World Music Wednesday: Miguel de León

January 22 @ 8:30 pm

Event Categories:
Free
A man wears a bright red button-up. Everything else is white - including his hat, which he tips forward.

A very active performer in both church music and choral ensembles, Miguel has also appeared in numerous operettas, zarzuelas and musical theater productions. In addition, he has developed a solo show featuring many different styles of Latin American music. His songs range from rhythmic salsa and classic boleros to the smooth sounds of Samba and Bossa Nova. While performing Miguel uses his gift for languages; he might sing one verse of “The Girl From Ipanema” or “Corcovado” (“Quiet Nights”) in Portuguese and then switch to Spanish or English for the next verse. Songs such as these are easily performed in two languages since both English and Portuguese versions are widely known.
