Lyra World Music concert in Vale do Lobo

Lyra World Music concert in Vale do Lobo

Discover the beautiful sound of the soprano voice combined with the harp at the Lyra World Music concert on Saturday, November 16 in the Vale do Lobo auditorium from 8pm.

Vale do Lobo, in partnership with cultural association Ideias do Levante, will be staging this unique performance, transporting audiences through time with melodies inspired by traditional music from across Europe.

Soprano Carla Pontes performs together with harpist Helena Madeira to create the unique sound of Lyra Music.

Carla Pontes was born in Lisbon and graduated in art education, having started her classical singing studies with Birgit Wegemann in 2004. Since then she attended several workshops, courses, seminars, private lessons and masterclasses in Portugal and abroad, and now performs regularly.

Helena Madeira began her studies of lyrical singing with Fernando Serafim in the Portuguese Musical Youth in 2004. She is mainly self-taught, giving the greatest importance to the meetings with musicians from other countries, especially on her trips to the West African Coast. In addition to having performed in Portugal, she has already been invited to play in Spain, Brazil and Cape Verde.

Project Lyra by Ideias do Levante was created as a way to promote the talented artists of the region while also educating audiences about the diversity of musical performances.
