Although this is not Alfonso’s quinceañera, the evening will showcase his musical accomplishments and upcoming events through videos and live performances.
A special Press Conference will be held in the Red Room of ACT II Stages on Basilio Badillo at 6:15 PM. PVMC will provide an introduction including a short Q & A with Alfonso.
Then the fun begins at 7 PM for everyone in the Red Room! The Press will have front row seats to Alfonso’s Musical Review, emceed by Juan Pablo. Past performances will be presented from musical theatre and opera, including Newsies, Fiddler on the Roof, La Traviata, Sweet Charity and more. Included will be previews of Forever Plaid, conducted by Alfonso and PVMC’s December Winter Concert Higher and Higher – Mucho Más Alto.
With an extensive musical background, Alfonso enthusiastically joins PVMC with both vision and experience. A graduate of The University of Texas-Pan American with a Master’s in Vocal Performance (Summa Cum Laude – with highest honors) he went on to become a music professor at UTPA. “I had the honor of being the Music Director and the Choir Conductor for the staged musicals both in the Theatre and Music Departments.”
This multi-talented bass/baritone has sung in musical theatre, opera, conducted youth choirs, taught vocal lessons, and was the musical director and arranger for the talented live band at Opera Teatro Bar in Texas where they perform everything from opera to international popular music.
Why does PVMC sing? “The mission of PVMC is to help gay people gain acceptance from their family, friends and colleagues. When people attend PVMC performances, they will observe joyful gay men, singing together. Perhaps some will alter their vision or begin to understand we are all simply human.” What is his vision for PVMC? “To be known throughout Mexico,” he says with a soft smile.
