Residents and Visitors of Puerto Vallarta will have the opportunity to listen to an evening of world-class classical music on January 31st at Jardin Montenegro Restaurant, Boulevard Nuevo Vallarta #220, Nuevo Vallarta, and on February 2nd at Centro Cultural Isla Cuale, Emiliano Zapata, Aquiles Serdan #437, when cellist extraordinaire Donald Moline, assisted by local musicians Jean-Guy Comeau, piano, Daniel Oliveros, clarinet, and Klaus Liebetanz, flute, present a cello recital.
Grammy© award winning cellist DONALD MOLINE, now retired, was cellist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for 39 years and has established a distinguished orchestral, chamber music, solo and recording career. He has performed in virtually every corner of the globe with many of the world’s greatest conductors and musicians. Jean-Guy Comeau who holds degrees in pedagogy, voice and piano, was born in Atlantic Canada and works in Montreal and Puerto Vallarta. John Henry Kreitler, a 10-time EMMY-award winning composer of concert, film/tv and theatre music, has composed, especially for this event, Sonidos de Vallarta, a 4-part suite for cello, flute and clarinet which will be performed as a WORLD PREMIERE. Other works to be performed are by Duport, Tchaikovsky, Massenet, Granados and Piazzolla.
All of the proceeds from these events will go to IAMPV (Instituto de Artes Musicales Puerto Vallarta) a non-profit organization that provides musical education for students in Vallarta and the surrounding areas, as well as serves as an umbrella organization for the Puerto Vallarta Chamber Orchestra and the Salty Paws Jazz Orchestra.
Both evenings will begin with drinks and hors d’oeuvres at 6:00 pm followed by a 7:00 pm concert. During the first hour there will be performances by IAMPV students.
