Holy Week events at the Casa San Miguel

It's the 17th season of the Pundaquit Festival. On Friday, April 2, 2010, the Pundaquit Virtuosi will perform Haydn's "Seven Last Words." This performance is a yearly event conducted by the group as part of the Pundaquit Festival as well as the celebration of the Holy Week.

Haydn was commissioned by the Cathedral of Cádiz in 1785 to write seven orchestral interludes to be performed alongside the recitation of Jesus' seven last words, including an introduction and an epilogue.

On Sunday, April 4, 2010, the Pundaquit Virtuosi will perform Handel's "Messiah," an English oratorio composed by George Frideric Handel.

These events are open to everyone and admission is free.

I was able to see this about two years ago. You must give this a try at least once. The Pundaquit Virtuosi is a very talented group of kids and young adults, led by Coke Bolipata.
