Also they will present a traditional folk music repertoire with “THE MUSICFROM THE END OF THE ANDES “….songs by Violeta Parra, Atahualpa Yupanqui,Victor Heredia and many others.
Paula has become a true cultural ambassador to the Midwest. Since 1986 she has performed with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra, Anderson Symphony Orchestra, Marion Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquesta Clasica de la Universidad de Santiago, Chile and the Ben-Dorit Symphony Orchestra from Israel.
”It is impossible to pinpoint the exact elements of her artistry that transformed a typical concert into a unique and intimate evening for both audience and orchestra members. Paula is a born artist! Her natural warmth conveyed through her singing as well as her tremendous presence totally captivated the audience through the evening. Her voice is inviting and exotic. She speaks to everyone, and all are touched by her sincere direct message. ”
