Vinnik to perform at APAC benefit


Diva Suzanne Vinnik will perform at a Hoku Concert Series private concert Nov. 24.

Proceeds from the concert at the Holualoa Inn pavilion will benefit Aloha Performing Arts Company.

Hoku Concert Series founder Frank Meyer said the series, now in its 13th year, “brings world-class vocal artists to our coast twice a year.”

Vinnik, a soprano, recently played the lead role in “La Traviata” for the Florida Grand Opera. In October, she was the headliner for the season opening gala of the Las Vegas Philharmonic directed by Case Scaglione of the New York Philharmonic. Also, she sang last year with legendary tenor Marcello Giordani.

Vinnik’s Kona performance will include, jazz, popular and classical selections, accompanied by Honolulu concert pianist Thomas Yee.
