MISO will be donating proceeds from the Sunday, February 21st performance to the Walenstein Musical Organization and its efforts to rebuild the New Victorian School and music conservatory in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Romel Joseph, father of MISO violist Victoria Joseph, founded the New Victorian School to give students a safe place to learn and make music. When the earthquake shook Haiti, the school was destroyed. This Sunday, with your help, we can bring music back to the children of Haiti. For more information about the New Victorian School, please visit www.thenewvictorianschool.org.

Cuban-American mezzo-soprano Mabel Ledo has been described by the New York Times as “a warm, expressive mezzo-soprano,” and Opera News reported: “Mabel Ledo unleashed a voluminous, firmly-placed mezzo that made one long to hear more of her.”

Ms. Ledo has graced the stages of Carnegie's Weil Hall, and Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, where she made her debut as Hua-Qui in the opera L'Oracolo. She has been a featured soloist with the Miami Beach World Music Festival in El Amor Brujo, under the baton of Maestro Eduardo Marturet, as well as with the Miami Civic Music Association, and most recently with the Concert Association of Florida at the Adrienne Arscht Center. Ms. Ledo’s most recent performances include Giulietta in The Tales of Hoffmann with Festival de Opera de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Ulrica in Un Ballo in Maschera with Opera de Oviedo, and Carmen under the musical direction of Anton Coppola.
