The city of Puerto Peñasco brings the year to an end with a special musical event. It’s the Winter Gala, which will be performed at the Civic Auditorium.
The Auditorium is located across from City Hall, near the Plaza Cameron (Shrimp Park). This will be the second year for the Winter Gala, and once again it will feature Soprano Rocio Olalde. Joining her on stage will be tenor Hector Palacio. Accompanying them at the piano will be Inna Leytush.
Getting it all ‘just right’ this year required a little extra effort. First of all, the piano. The nicest one readily available for the evening was a baby grand from the lobby of the Bella Sirena Resort across town. Generously donated for the evening, the piano was gingerly moved to it’s new home by nineteen city workers!
Pianist Inna Leytush arrives from New York for the performance, and both Rocio Olalde and Hector Palacio are known for their work in Mexico, as well as Europe. The night will feature well known works of Opera, as well songs from Mexico and Italy.
The performance will begin at 8:00pm on Wednesday, December 30th. Tickets are available at Puerto Viejo Coffee Roasters in the Old Port, as well as at the door. The cost is 40.00 Pesos per ticket, with proceeds going to assist the new Arts Center being completed next to the Civic Auditorium.
