Sunday, November 5, 2017 the youth of the Miami Children's Chorus presented Bach to Basics with alumni guest artist Frances Collins-Tamargo, soprano and a stellar group of instrumentalists led by MCC principal accompanist Alan Ngim. Singing the music of Bach, Handel and Vivaldi the audience was taken on a journey of music from the Baroque period. Singing solo works, chorales, excerpts from cantata's and masses, it was a wonderful afternoon of artistic music-making by the children of the MCC.
Without question, the highlight of the afternoon was the singing by soprano Frances Collins-Tamargo. Frances gave a passionate and inspiring performance in each and every work she performed. As one audience member wrote: "This was the most beautiful choral concert I have heard in years. Not a 10 but higher. Frances Collins-Tamargo gave me chills." Maestro Sharp commented: "Thank you Frances for sharing your performing excellence with the MCC. Your preparation, stage presence and singing were a joy for the current choristers to witness. I could not be more proud of how much you continue to grow as an artist. Bravo!"
"As I said this past weekend, you and your kids really made the show a massive success. The oohs and ahhs that came from the audience told the story of the evening and I can't imagine a better ending for the opera than what you helped us create. Thank you for being the difference maker for our production. I hope we can work with each other on this again for 2018 and beyond." Graham Fandrei, Executive Director, Magic City Opera
Joining local professionals in a production by Magic City Opera, MCC appeared in 4 performances of Hansel and Gretel in the month of October. In what MCO hopes will become a South Florida tradition, hundreds of audience members young and old filled the performing space at Pinecrest Gardens and the Olympia Theater. They were treated to some outstanding singing and given a chance to "Trick-or-Treat" with the cast at the end of each show. Thank you Magic City Opera for a fabulous experience. We look forward to working with you some more in promoting "The Big Five."
