Sing for Hope & Opera Hispánica to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Virtual Performance

By David Salazar

On Sept. 20, 2021, Sing for Hope is set to partner with Opera Hispánica for a special event in New York City to honor Hispanic Heritage Month.

The showcase, which will be streamed via Sing for Hope’s Open Arts platform, will be led by Opera Hispánica Artistic Director Jorge Parodi and Sing for Hope Co-Founder and soprano Camille Zamora as they share music, conversation, and even food with audience members. There will also be appearances by such artists as tenor José Mongelós as he takes on excerpts from Haase’s “Nomongeta,” the world’s first opera in Guarani.

Other guests will include bandoneon player Rodolfo Zanetti and guitarist Cem Duruöz.

The event is presented as part of Sing for Hope’s Open Arts program which presents live, interactive performances of a wide range of music including Broadway, jazz, classical, gospel, and other world music. The program is donor-supported with 100 percent of all proceeds going directly to performers and other featured artists.

The performance kicks off at 6 p.m. EST.
