It was an intense program, in public and emotions: we sang black spirituals and Christmas hymns with the Gospel Collective choir; we shared the joy and danced to the rhythm of mornas and coladeiras immortalized by Cesária Évora in a vibrant concert in tribute to the Diva dos Pés Descalços; we savored baroque classics and traditional Portuguese songs with the Lisbon Cantat Chamber Choir and Orchestra conducted by conductor Cesário Costa; we traveled back in time with the Ensemble Dan Luz al Sol; we remembered the peace and spirituality of Gandhi with Rão Kyao and let ourselves be lulled by Teresa Salgueiro's sweet voice in a wonderful universe of Christmas songs. This was also a solidarity program with União Audiovisual and the donations were very generous.

It was a beautiful program, with a full house and heart.

Thank you to everyone!
