Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The Vallarta Vocalista Ensemble announces its 2018 concert series, In Perfect Harmony: From Baroque to Broadway, with six performances in the intimate Incanto Theatre in February and March.
The ensemble, founded in 2016, was the smash hit of the 2017 season, playing to sold-out houses. This season, members of the original group, including Kathy Overly, Sharon Baughman-White, Suzanne Kirkpatrick, Jean-Guy Comeau, Carl Timothy and David White, will be joined by new members, Vanessa Amaro, Jim Monro and Gene Berube. All of the singers are classically trained and this demanding program consists of entirely new music.
With another intriguing mix of genres, the concert will include the seldom-heard baroque jewel, Durante's Magnificat excerpts from Carmina Burana and Les Miserables; Mexican favorites, Besame Mucho and El Amador; and well-loved jazz standards, including You Can't Take That Away From Me and Ain't Misbehavin'. The Ensemble will also reprise Smile this year, a completely new acappella version.
Both afternoon and evening performances are available: February 22 at 7:00 pm, Feb. 24 and 25 at 4:00 pm, March 1st at 7:00 pm, and March 3 and 4 at 4:00 pm.
