The Boston Portuguese Festival 2013 presents Andreia Pinto Correia in concert. The music of composer Andreia Pinto-Correia is distinguished by influences of Iberian literary traditions. Her music, described by The New York Times as an “aural fabric”, and “ mysterious, elegant, magical” by the New Music Box, was profiled in the prestigious literary magazine Jornal de Letras, who proclaimed that “the music of Andreia Pinto-Correia has been a major contribution to the dissemination of Portugal’s culture and language, perhaps a contribution larger than could ever be imagined”. Born in Lisbon, Portugal, Andreia Pinto-Correia began her musical studies in her native country at the Academia de Amadores de Música and at the Escola Luís Villas Boas, and is currently a teaching fellow in composition at the New England Conservatory in Boston, where she studied with Michael Gandolfi. Reception: 6:15, Concert: 7:00. Free and open to the public.
