Amadeo is also an accomplished music writer who has written over 200 songs, “some of which have been sung by Héctor Lavoe, Celia Cruz and El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico.”
After the naming ceremony, Casita Maria (another Longwood cultural landmark) will host a reception with music and refreshments which is free and open to the public, however, you MUST RSVP.
