Many of you will be able to view Mario's St. Louis, Missouri concert with Deborah Myers and George Perris online. The concert will be broadcast by hectv on Dec. 7, 2012 at 9:00 PM, I believe Eastern Standard time, although it was not stated. Log on to: www.hectv.org. Do a Search or put in Dec.7 date. This is not the same concert that is currently airing on PBS stations. That concert was filmed in June with Hayley Westenra and it will be out in DVD soon.
The concert was fantastic. Mario, Deborah Myers, and George Perris all had a great deal to say about the work the Horatio Algier Association does for student scholarships. Mario and Deborah have performed together from their days in Londons's stage performances going back to the early 1990's and it is quite apparent. They have a beautiful connection on stage. I don't know why Deborah has never chosen to pursue a solo career, she has a very lovely voice. Mario seemed to be enjoying himself. George sang 3 songs. I am not familiar with George. I learned he has become quite popular in Canada, being of Greek and French heritage. But the medley of duets from the King and I, De-Lovely, West Side Story and others was to me the highlight. Included were many songs from Mario's album, Beautiful Things. It will be televised online again next Friday the 14th, well worth watching!
