September 21 2014, 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The Newton T. Bass Family Concert Series  - "Fernando Varela"



Sunday, September 21, 2014 - 2:30pm



Imagine a three-year-old boy growing up in San Juan, Puerto Rico, imitating the musical arcobatics of the iconic Michael Jackson. Those melodious antics helped the young Fernando Varela develop a strong, tenor voice, paving the way for his discovery . Throughout the years, Varela has performed in numerous opera's and hundreds of concerts. Traveled the world performing, and has recorded 3 albums. All of these accomplishments are just the beginning! His music uplifts the soul and an evening spent listening to him becomes a very memorable experience.



"This kind of voice is rare and it comes around about once every 100 years, as in a Luciano Pavarotti." - Maestro Earl Stafford. Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra.
