First Presbyterian Church
Vocalist Elena Mindlina returns to Vero, is joined by Bonachea, Craig, and Cover
First Presbyterian Church will host a concert, Best Songs Around the World: The Un-forgotten art of Olga Coehlo, on Sunday, December 8, 2019, at 4:00pm in the sanctuary. This performance will feature Elena Mindlina (soprano) accompanied by Miguel Bonachea (classical guitar), Dr. Jacob Craig (piano), and Gretchen Cover (harp). The church is located at 520 Royal Palm Boulevard in Vero Beach. Admission is free to the community; a $10 donation is suggested.
The performance honors the legacy of Olga Coehlo, a Brazilian guitarist and singer who organized many of her concert programs into categories reflecting her wide-ranging and eclectic musical interests. Rooted firmly in songs of her Brazilian homeland, her recitals embraced songs from all over the world. She sang fluently in many languages – Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, English, and even Maori. This concert will feature the same type of programming, including well-known folk songs from the Americas, Europe, and Russia.
