La Zarzuela Viva Produced by Texas Medical Center Orchestra
August 27 @ 8:15 pm - 10:15 pm
Join us for a musical evening filled with Spanish aria and opera!
The award-winning Texas Medical Center Orchestra will perform La Zarzuela Vive, a Spanish lyric-dramatic genre incorporating operatic themes. This style originated in the baroque period in Spain and has been adopted in regions where Spain has wielded influence, particularly Cuba, Mexico, and the Philippines. This performance will feature two guest vocalists, and our hope is to wow audience members with a performance of a wonderful music tradition.
Led by Artistic Director Libi Lebel, the orchestra will be joined by the International Voices Houston choir and feature Ricardo Garcia and Jimena Monsterrat as soloists.
Established in 2000, the Texas Medical Center Orchestra (TMCO) is one of the few orchestras with its origin in the health professions. Most of the members are health professionals who have a dedication to music that goes beyond their daily occupations.
