Fernando Ortega, contemporary Christian singer-songwriter, will be performing a free concert at Union College at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 19. A musician since the age of eight, Ortega perfected his unique sounds at the University of New Mexico before releasing his first album in 1994. This will be his third performance at Union College.
“I am looking forward to him coming to Union,” said Brigitta Beam, junior communication major from Colorado. “I think it’s cool that we can have someone come here who has been in Christian music for so long and has used the gifts he was given to bless others.”
While the concert is oriented towards college students and visiting high school students, community members are welcome to attend. Seating is free but limited. College View Church will seat 1,200 on a first come, first serve basis.
