Tomorrow (July 16) 18:30, I’ll be singing with with my group Ensemble Eborensis at the Church of Senhor Jesus da Pobreza, in the historical centre of Évora, in an event promoted by the Cultural Bureau delegation of Alentejo, the School of Arts of Évora University and the Military Command (the church’s owner) of this church’s reopening to public visits.
