As a melting pot for cultures, Los Angeles in great, hosts many events with the goal of bringing groups of all religion, race and culture together. World famous conductor/singers Plácido and Marta Domingo are involved by inviting Latinos of Los Angeles to events at the LA Opera. On May 6, Hispanics for LA Opera gathered in the Founders room at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for a buffet lunch in the presence of some of the world’s next generation of Opera singers.
Since 1991, Hispanics for LA Opera has been an organization of opera lovers founded to promote Opera within the Hispanic community. Those of the group attend opera performances and fundraise to support the community and education programs, providing opportunities for thousands of children and adults to get involved in the community.
At the luncheon, where guests of the opera-involved Hispanic community were greeted with glasses of rosé, enjoyed a full bar and buffet and listened attentively to performances by Tenor Carlos Enrique Santelli, Soprano Liv Redpath, Baritone Juan Carlos Heredia and Pianist Nino Sanikidze.
