Take a trip back in time to the days when Dusty Springfield, Johnny Mathis and Elvis ruled the airwaves, as “Midnight Radio” goes live once again for a summer edition of the popular concert series.
The free concert will be held Friday, Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. at the Coral Gables Adult Center in Coral Gables.
The concert is presented by Geraldo José Ortega, who created the “Midnight Radio” concert series” in order to present classic jazz versions of songs from different eras.
Selections will include “Stormy Weather,” “Misty,” “The Shadow of Your Smile,” “Orange Colored Sky,” “The Man That Got Away,” and much more.
The singers will be accompanied by the All Souls Jazz Quartet.
Ortega, who recently voiced the role of Tony in the Miami City Ballet’s production of “West Side Story Suite,” appeared this summer in the Miami Music Festival. He also voiced the role of Tony with the Miami City Ballet, and appeared this month with the Opus Opera in New Orleans.
Guest soloist will be Vanessa Gentzschein. She has sung with the Florida Grand Opera and the Lyric Opera of Chicago and has also appeared in the chorus of those operas, as well as in title roles on various stages, including in Italy.
In addition, singers who belong to Ortega’s “Rising Stars” program, and who appear regularly at the Coral Gables Adult Center, will also perform.
There is no charge for the concert, but donations to the Alzheimer’s Foundation are welcome.
