Jukebox was a great success with over 160 music lovers in attendance. Cami Thompson, Francesca Caviglia, Steven Murdoch and Karen Solaegui-Lyman were soloist standouts. Jason Stanton accompanied an amazing variety of songs from the piano. The Nevada Opera Chorus provided a number of ensemble and lead offerings.
Of note, and a crowd favorite, Il Nome, the Chorus's Madrigal Ensemble performed several numbers ranging from traditional Madrigals to Andrew Lloyd Weber. This talented group is also available for private affairs.
