Soprano Christina Villaverde and pianist Melissa Loehnig, both from the United States, will inaugurate the Música al Atardecer program at the Teatro Nacional Thursday at 5:10 p.m. The event also is sponsored by the Centro Cultural Costarricense Norteamericano, which has invited the pair as part of the Promising artists of the 21st century.
Admission is 2,000 colons, about $4. The event is being held in the foyer of the theater where there is space for just 98 persons, said the Teatro Nacional. Ms. Villaverde is a doctoral candidate at the University of Florida in music.
