Out private performance is an engaging musical journey in two parts through different musical genres, languages, formats, and traditions featuring exceptional international artists. Each piece was carefully chosen for the Valley of Boston and its community highlighting the identity and expertise of each artist. These pieces are interesting, exciting, and family-friendly. They work well as a unit and also complement each other on the conceptual arch of the concert. PART I opens with fantastic pieces for Piano Quartet Liebesliedchen (Little love song) and Arabischer Tanz (Arab dance) by Richard Strauss, then we continue with two sets of Neapolitan/Italian songs and Zarzuela arias by David and Cynthia. We will then enjoy the famous Cygne (Swan) by Sain-Saëns as a solo cello piece by Ana Ospina. We´ll proceed with voice and piano audience favorites in English: The Sing-Along That´s Amore, the moving Amazing Grace, and a duo version of the charming popular song What a Wonderful World. We will close this section with an instrumental rendition of the joyful Czardas by Vittorio Monti. 

PART II starts with the famous Nutcracker suite on a piano and string ensemble version. Then we will enter the stage works through the 9th Symphony tenor solo by Ludwig van Beethoven, and then we will enjoy some selections from the Musical West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein. We will enter into the Opera World through the elegant tenor aria Il Mio Tesoso Intanto from Don Giovanni by Wolfgang A. Mozart. We will perform then the famous soprano aria O Mio Babbino Caro by Giacomo Puccini, and the fantastic toast ¨Brindisi¨ from La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi. The Concert will close with special pieces from Latin-America, the beautiful Oblivion by Piazzola, the famous Colombian pasillo Pueblito Viejo and two Mexican songs: Estrellita by Manuel Ponce de Leon and the joyful Cielito Lindo by Quirino Mendoza y Cortés.
