      Concurso San Miguel X—
      Winners in Concert

Three weeks after Concurso San Miguel X, Maestro Bills invited the two top prize winners and three additional prize winners to participate in our Annual Winners Concert, held at the Bellas Artes in San Miguel de Allende. Accompanied by Mario Alberto Hernández, the singers presented a wonderful program of arias and ensembles entitled “Puccini and Friends.” In addition to arias and ensembles from five Puccini operas, the program also included music by Charpentier, Rossini, Delibes, Gluck, Weber, and Wagner. The sold-out audience rewarded the performers with an extended standing ovation, and the singers replied with a fun and exciting rendition of “Jurame.”
