Coral Gables Opera 2012 American Ideal VIII – 4 May @ 1st Methodist Church Coral Gables

American Ideal VIII (AI8) Coral Gables Opera May 2012 1st Methodist Church Coral Gables

The annual concert produced by Coral Gables Opera for broadcast on WLRN Channel 17 (PBS) in South Florida will take place on 4 May 2012 @ 10 AM in the historic 1st Methodist Church Coral Gables. The concert is free and is used to introduce Miami-Dade elementary school children to classical music and opera.

More than 600 students will hear a style of music they don’t hear at home, or with their friends. This is a cultural introduction that has encouraged young musicians to play classical, as well as contemporary music.

I invite you to join me and my friends Jean Collahuazo, soprano and David Pereira, tenor, as well as some very talented young musicians such Sage McBride (violin), Esther Chae (violin/cello) and YinJia Lin (piano).
