RAYMOND, Wash. — Sunday Afternoon Live will present Duetto, starring soprano Victoria Robertson and baritone Bernardo Bermudez, for a performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19.
Together with pianist Vernon Snyder, Duetto performs timeless duets from musical theater, classical crossover, popular standards and opera. From “My Fair Lady” to “Les Miserables” and “Don Giovanni” to “La Traviata,” Duetto creates an atmosphere of pure musical harmony. Bermudez’s lush baritone voice combined with Robertson’s vibrant soprano tones make for a full, warm spectrum of sound demonstrating the beauty and power of the human voice.
Blending voices and styles, Duetto captures the essence of each musical piece. The elegant Robertson is a vocally versatile artist who has performed with numerous symphony orchestras and opera companies, including San Diego Symphony, La Jolla Symphony, San Diego Opera, and Opera Santa Barbara. She has also traveled internationally for seven years as Miss USO San Diego performing for military personnel and special dignitaries.
Bermudez teamed up with Robertson when they were performing at the San Diego Opera and had been thrown together in concerts across the West Coast. Bermudez has won awards in voice competitions and performed in multiple operatic and theatrical productions.
Accompanist Snyder is on the faculty at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and is also music director at the Claremont School of Theology. An avid educator, Snyder has taught various music courses at California State University, Long Beach, and has delivered a series of Lecture-Recitals at Cypress College.
