Angel Velez opens Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra’s 2021-2022 season

Thornton alum and conductor Angel Velez (MA ‘14) opened the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra’s 2021-2022 season on August 7 with a special “Hollywood Magic” concert that celebrated the magic of cinema. This musical presentation was a culmination of the summer session of the Los Angeles Film Directing Intensive Event (LAFCI), a workshop designed for students to gain more experience directing and rehearsing with a live orchestra.

The concert’s repertoire included songs scored by Emmy-winning Thornton alumni Ludwig Göransson (GCRT ‘08) and Carlos Rafael Rivera (DMA ‘10) and was accompanied by spectacular lighting design.
