Rafael Hernandez Music Festival – September 24, 2017

Rafael Hernandez Music Festival  -  Bronx Library Center  -  September 24, 2017

Hernandez was Puerto Rico’s pre-eminent composer during the first half of the 20th century, and the concert of his music is held in his honor.  Of course, I couldn’t understand a word, but so what!  This is one of my favorite venues, as there’s usually space for me to get the paints going, and for this one it was 100% watercolors.  There were two separate combos and some confusion on my part on how to allocate sketch time.  Torch song (I think; I’m going here on sound and not lyrics) specialist Mirabal was featured, brought out twice (one costume change).  Ayala smoothly shouldered the remaining vocal duties, and was no slouch.
