The Ambassador of Portugal and his wife Isabel were delighted to host on Sunday, March 12th the Our Lady of the Light Band, from Fall River, Massachusetts. One of the most distinguished Portuguese-American bands, they performed in Washington DC, at the prestigious John Phillip De Souza festival (another Portuguese descendant!).
In the morning of the 12th, they played the Portuguese and American national anthems, in the front yard of the Portuguese Residence in Washington DC. The members of the Band and their families were welcome with a brunch hosted by the Ambassador and his wife.
The Ambassador and his wife were joined in hosting the band by Massachusetts State Senator Michael J. Rodrigues and State Representative Alan Silvia.
