The Mexico City-based performance group, Opera Joven, will make its U.S. debut in Phoenix, Nov. 23 to Dec. 13, and the vocal quintet will visit Carl Hayden, December 3 for an assembly, and is scheduled to go to Central, as well.

Opera Joven, or Young Opera, fuses classical, contemporary and traditional Mexican music to create a unique repertoire. The group consists of five classically-trained vocalists and a pianist who bring a fresh approach to operatic and classical music.

Several performances are planned for Phoenix, including a concert at The Orpheum Theater, November 25, called Gala de Musica Mexicana, a First Friday show at the Phoenix Art Museum on December 4, and at St. Mary’s Basilica in downtown Phoenix, December 11.
