August 29th: Fernando Ortega-2:00-4:30 PM
Fernando Ortega is a singer-songwriter in Contemporary Christian music. He is noted both for his interpretations of many traditional hymns and songs, such as “Be Thou My Vision” and “Give Me Jesus”. He also writes clear, easily understood songs, such as “This Good Day”. He was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and learned to play the piano at age 8. During his upbringing, his family spent time in Barbados and Ecuador. Ortega cites this as an influence on his music. He received his bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University of New Mexico.
He will perform 2 separate programs for us. One will contain his “greatest hits.” The other will be an Easter cantata.
