Flora was commissioned by the Office of the Mayor of New York City to sing a tribute in honor of the victims of Flight AA 587 at the 9th anniversary service of the crash.   The outdoor venue was at the memorial site, located on Beach 116th St. and the Boardwalk, in Far Rockaway, Queens, on November 12, 2010 at 9 am. Mayor Bloomberg remarked, “Gracias, Flora, for that beautiful performance.  Your words and your voice remind us that love and loss are the most powerful of human emotions – and they are inextricably linked, so thank you very much”.

Flora will interpret the role of Boy in the Williamsburg Opera Workshop’s production of The Indian Queen. The  unconventional and sensationalist baroque opera by Henry Purcell dramatizes a fictional encounter between the Aztecs and the Incas as they vie for control of Pre-Colombian Latin America.
