Pasadena Presbyterian Church’s virtual Music at Noon series presents Brazilian musician, composer and producer Roberto Montero and his guitar, premiering from noon to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 19, on the church’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
Montero has been living in Los Angeles for 22 years, working on studio, live TV and film projects, as well as teaching for over 30 years. Montero has performed on NBC’s “The Voice,” “The Tonight Show,” “Honorary Oscars,” as well as in other venues across the United States and other countries. He has worked on the soundtrack of “Rio 2,” Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse in “Carnaval” and other films.
“I believe that music – and art in general – has the ultimate role of bringing all of us together in peace, and can have a positive impact in our lives,” Montero says on his website, www.robertomontero.com.
The Music at Noon series is produced by Friends of Music, which produces concerts and other arts events for Pasadena Presbyterian Church. With the church’s celebrated staff and dedicated volunteer musicians at its core, Friends of Music adds performers with regional, national and international reputations to create concerts of remarkable artistic quality and integrity.
Based in the Pasadena Playhouse District, Friends of Music produces a regular concert series and the weekly Music at Noon. Since November, Music at Noon has been virtual with the same tradition of inviting well-known musicians and groups to perform for a half-hour every Wednesday. Friends of Music lists their schedules on its website, www.ppcmusic.org.
