Join The Camino Foundation, Eastern Washington University and Central Washington University for a one-of-a-kind concert at the Moore Theatre in support of education.

Concert proceeds will fund scholarships for first-generation students pursuing college/university education. Award-winning Tenor José Iñiguez and Classical Pianist Jeremy Neufeld will perform the Encanto Program accompanied by Ballard Civic Orchestra, conducted by Paula Madregal from Guadalara, Mexico. The program will also feature Soloists Teo Benson of the Tacoma Symphony and Eddie Nicholson from the Philharmonia Seattle Orchestra. Mariachi Huenachi, recipient of the Golden Apple Award, directed by award-winning Ramon Rivera, will open the evening. Guiding us through this unique, cultural journey will be Emcees Supreme Court Justice Steve Gonzales and Fashion Designer Niveen Keaton. Highlights from the evening’s diverse program include: Vesti la Giubba (Pagliacci), La Traviata (Brindisi), Una Furtiva Lagrima (L’elisir d’amore) works from Guacamo Puccini, J.C.
