HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Fortuna Calvo, shown at right in the photo at right alongside New York State Senator Liz Krueger, was honored as A Woman of Distinction by Senator Krueger in a ceremony held in the New York State Senate in May. The recognition followed a State Senate resolution acknowledging Calvo and other women throughout New York State as 2014 Women of Distinction. For 19 years, the New York State Senate has given this honor in May in commemoration of Women's History Month in New York.

Procreart is presenting Alejandro Sieveking's La remolienda. Directed by Peter A.
