Our 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 and our community while highlighting the identity and expertise of each artist. They work well as a unit and contribute to the conceptual arch of the concert.

PART I opens with the energic Piano Quartet in D Major by Ludwig Van Beethoven, then we continue with two sets of Neapolitan/Italian songs and Zarzuela arias by David and Cynthia. We will enjoy then 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, the heartfelt piece If I can help somebody by the female composer Alma Androzzo, 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.

After a brief intermission, PART II starts with the charming Nutcracker suite on a piano and string ensemble version. Then we will enjoy some Operetta and Musical pieces with Take a pair of sparkling eyes by Gilbert and Sullivan, and selections from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein. We will enter into the Opera World through the comic Can Can by Jacques Offenbach, continuing with the elegant Che Beltá, Che Leggiadría 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 Colombia and Mexico. Valentina Pardo will perform an instrumental version of the popular song El Camino de la Vida, and David will continue with the gorgeous Pueblito Viejo. Our program will culminate with Júrame by the female composer María Grever, the charming Estrellita, and the celebratory Cielito Lindo.
