“Her lungs are large and her voice is full of power and passion, but also beauty,” says the Atlanta Music Guide, and Iowa’s popular radio station, KVIK reports “If passion has a voice, it’s Sarah Pray.” We are blessed here at Casa de los Ángeles to welcome her as a volunteer, and she has generously agreed to grace us with a performance at our event next Wednesday.
Accompanying Sarah will be Jean Pascal Monzies of San Miguel de Allende. Though Monzies typically performs in the duo act, Pascal y Rolando, he and Sarah will be collaborating on some songs. He performs world and original music in both French and English. His guitar playing and smooth voice walk a line that is somewhere between jazz and folk.
In addition, Ruth Argüello Medina, owner of San Miguel Massage, will be giving free massages to any and all of our attendees at our event this month. Come stop by to receive a relaxing professional massage, while you listen to beautiful music and enjoy some delicious home-cooking!
Our venue, the beautiful bed and breakfast Casa de la Cuesta, is owned by Heidi and Bill LeVasseur. Come sit in the spacious courtyard and enjoy the live music, free drinks, and fresh food. You can also come and explore Bill’s collection of authentic Mexican masks in La Otra Cara de Mexico, the world-class mask museum that Bill curates himself! Don’t miss this lovely afternoon and great benefit for the children of Casa de los Ángeles!
Casa de los Ángeles was founded in 2000, and is a free daycare and safe haven for the children of single mothers who come from the outskirts of town to work, to sell their wares at the mercado or clean houses in San Miguel. Before the center was established these children were often left at home alone, locked in the house. The Casa de los Ángeles family has evolved into a community center where mothers find the support they need to create a better life for their families. Besides childcare, these families receive medical attention, scholarship opportunities, transitional housing and a food bank, as we form relationships that respect the dignity of each individual.
If you’re interested in supporting Casa de los Ángeles, while having a great time, make sure to take some time out to come partake in our event!
