Meanwhile, the Café Chorale will offer an evening of Broadway hits, jazz and rock at the Eugene O’Neill Theater at the Costa Rican North American Cultural Center in Barrio Dent, San Pedro (Friday, July 8).

Also performing is the Coro Intermezzo, in its farewell concert before departing for its U.S. tour. The choir will offer contemporary Latin American music and rock/pop at the Casa de la Cultura Alfredo González Flores in Heredia (Sunday, July 10).

Catch the country’s first International Songwriters Festival, with various shows throughout the capital  read our article here (through Sunday, July 10).
