Summer Concert in the Park – Cantamos
Please join us at Jack Knight Hall in Calaveras Big Trees State Park for amazing music, hors d’oeuvres. We will be featuring Locke Vineyards wine.
Cantamos - Michela Macfarlane and Cantamos highlight their musical dexterity by moving from arias, traditional Latin songs and musicals, to contemporary favorites. Their music moves seamlessly from English to Italian, Spanish to French to Portuguese, and back again. Michela Macfarlane spent ten years steeped exclusively in baroque music. To expand her singing world she moved to the realms of jazz, pop, and Latin sounds. She is still true to her operatic roots, but has grown as a performer. Michela is backed by Ron Schaner on (Bass and vocal), Fred Treece (Guitar and vocal), Jerry Solberg (Keyboards and vocal) and Scott Leverone (Drums).
Tickets $30. (Tickets purchased online include Park entrance fee). If tickets purchased at the door, you will have to pay and additional $10 per car Park entrance fee.
