Radio-Arts-Indonesia INTERVIEW

On Wednesday, May 13, 2009, we Swara Sonora Trio were interviewed live by Radio-Arts-Indonesia. It's an online radio based in the UK and US, but operated by Charles Dean Conrad and his lovely wife, Tinette Soekardjo in Jakarta, Indonesia. They interviewed us online, through the internet. It was such a fun experience!!

Charles Conrad is the older brother of Robert Conrad, of WCLV Radio Cleveland and Cleveland Institute of Music. To listen to the entire interview, please visit our website (we post it there to be listened at all times) at this link:

This interview will be broadcasted several times until Swara Sonora Trio's arrival in Indonesia in August 2009. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, Charles and Tinette!!

La Zarzuela Inn Benefit Concert - Broadway!!

Yaay!! I am proud to say that this concert was a successful event. It was well attended, and our programs of mixing up the classics with ligther repertoire (broadway musicals) worked very well. Thank you to Canelo Hills Winery ( and also our generous host La Zarzuela Inn ( to make this Saturday afternoon a very delightful and memorable event.
Great food, great wine, and great company (thank you audience!!)
We hope to see you all soon in our next concert, which is July 19th, at the St. Andrews Bach Society Concert. That will be our last concert before embarking to Indonesia!
Vila Jarrel from Vila Thai ( also came to our event. She is a sponsor of the arts in Tucson and we are glad to have her presence.

Performing Around Town

The Swara Sonora Trio has been busy! Besides all the travel planning and fundraising (which is going very well -- over $1400 raised from our 100 Friends campaign alone!), we've been keeping up our performing chops by singing and playing all over Tucson. Last Friday we performed at a lovely evening of music and wine, a benefit event for Casa Mariposa. The event was an elegant, dressy occasion, and gave us a chance to dress up a little less formally than we usually do for performances. Check us out!
