A holiday concert on Dec. 10, 7 p.m., will help to herald in the season when the Wilton Manors Business Association (WMBA) in conjunction with the City of Wilton Manors, presents "Holiday Spectacular In The Park" with sensational international vocalist Jonathan Hawkins and friends.
“This family friendly outdoor concert is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays! With all of your favorite holiday classics, performed under the stars in Wilton Manors' own, Richardson Park!” according to the Eventbrite description.
The Holiday Spectacular will be featuring “America’s Got Talent’s” Yoli Mayor, The Bombshell’s Heather Lundstedt, and internationally celebrated tenor Jonathan Hawkins, who will also direct the evening.
The event will offer VIP tickets with guaranteed premium seating, admission to pre-event cocktail reception (from 6 until 7) and live entertainment, along with a meet & greet with the performers.
VIP Table Sponsorship provides premium seating directly in front of stage and can seat up to 8 guests, as well as admission to the pre-event cocktail reception, and includes a meet and greet with the event’s performers.
“’America’s Got Talent’s’ Yoli Mayor, The Bombshell’s Heather Lundstedt, and internationally celebrated tenor Jonathan Hawkins, who will also direct the evening, will attend the Meet and Greet,” Peter Jackson said on behalf of the WMBA. “Local performers Tommy Paduano, LeNora Jaye, Antonio Edwards, as well as Jennifer McClain are also expected to participate.”
General Admission allows individuals and/or families to bring their own chairs, blankets, and even picnics to set up in the great lawn to enjoy the evening's festivities.
This is an open-air, family concert with adult seating as low as $15, kids under 12 free.
Proceeds for the evening will benefit the Wilton Manors Children’s Fund.
“The holidays are about children. The Wilton Manors Business Association chose the Wilton Manors Children’s Fund to be the beneficiary for this reason,” Peter Jackson said.
Jonathan Hawkins has directed and performed around the world from the Cathedal of Notre Dame in Paris to the Lincoln Center in New York. Hawkins has become one of the most sought after crossover tenors with his “tour de force” voice.
Hawkins last appeared in South Florida as the artistic director of Our Night Out, as well as performances at GLBX’s Artopia, El Tucán in Miami, and Andrea Bocelli’s- One Night in Central Park Revisited at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.
“To produce what hopefully will become an annual tradition for the first time in Richardson Park, is a great honor. But what is even more exciting is the line up of talent I’ll be joined by,” Hawkins said. “This community is so lucky to have some remarkable local artists, and I am overjoyed to share the stage with them, for what is surely to be an incredible evening, fill with holiday spirit!”
