For the first time award-winning, Latin American singer/songwriter Fernando Ortega is coming to the Music Factory!

In the early 1990s, young composer and pianist Fernando Ortega, classically trained and musically complex, entered the Christian music scene. His distinctively earthy sound perplexed and even defied the pop status quo. Descended from eight generations of Mexican weavers, this son of the Rio Grande entwined thoughtful melodies with Celtic, bluegrass, classical and Latin American influences to create something unique and rare.

Today, Fernando is one of Christian music’s most respected artists, his works encompassing modern hymns, liturgical songs, and Inspirational and praise & worship favorites. With three Gospel Music Association Dove Awards and a Billboard Latin Music Award to his credit. Renowned for his stirring arrangements of beloved hymns, his solo discography features 18 projects in a heralded career spanning more than 25 years.

Tickets are $45.00 in advance and $50.00 at the door. Seating is general admission and doors open at 6:30 PM. Event begins at 7PM. Concessions will be available for sale during the concert. Tickets here.

The Music Factory is located on the 2nd floor of the WWI era Old Milk Factory on the Rum River in Anoka. It is not a wheelchair accessible building and there are some stairs to climb.
