Overlooking Vallarta and its cathedral as the backdrop, the evening started with a heartfelt tribute with the song Ava Maria, dedicated to the health and well-being of resident Chickie Alter who was instrumental in bringing LOrpheus to Puerto Vallarta, and ended with countless encores and to the shouts of "Bravo!"
"The evening could not have been more perfect," gushed Debbi Egan, owner of Banana Cantina and Choco Banana Restaurants. "I am so thrilled that Banderas Bay now offers such high-quality concerts featuring world-class musicians in intimate surroundings."
Inspired by Parisian nineteenth-century salons where select groups gathered to enjoy fine music in private residences, this concert is the first of many cultural evenings featuring extraordinary musicians from around the globe.
