Coronado is bursting at the seams with talent and Coronadan Elena Vizuet is determined to show just how much. Vizuet is founder and one of the members of Musica Vitale, a non-profit organization comprised of an ensemble of opera singers and musicians. Vizuet describes these artists as “the best of the best in San Diego.”

Vizuet was born and raised in Russia and was educated in her craft in a much different manner than most born and raised Coronadans. After attending college at age fourteen, Vizuet earned her Masters Degree in Conducting and Music Education. She went on to become a professor teaching voice, conducting, sight-reading, choir, oral literature, and more. She eventually made her way to Coronado after marrying an American in the Navy.

In Coronado, she craved to be working in the industry once more and auditioned for the San Diego Opera. It wasn’t too long after that when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005 and members of the San Diego Opera Chorus and Sacred Heart Catholic Church would come together to sing at a benefit concert not knowing that would spark the initial thoughts of Musica Vitale. Vizuet is also the Music Director at Sacred Heart.

This summer, Musica Vitale is giving Coronado three chances to experience an amazing night of wine and musical entertainment. Not one performance will be like another. The first, held in June, was a huge success where Musica Vitale serenaded its audience with romantic music by Dozietti, Puccini, and Offenbach performed by husband and wife team Lisa & Chad Frisque, Vizuet, and Elena Mashkovtseva.

On July 19, Musica Vitale will be solely focusing on American music and every song will be performed in English. Songs by composers such as Gershwin will be performed.

On August 23, you will be captivated by Dr. Alison Luedecke as she plays laments by Vavaldi, Handel, and Scarlatti on the harpsichord. 

Although, the Musica Vitale ensemble is known for their outstanding opera, they obviously have much more to bring to the table. What makes them unique is that each artist has the ability and talent to blend beautifully with one another as an ensemble and as well as perform as a soloist—a feat that is incredibly rare to a singer and/or musician. Being affiliated with San Diego Opera and the San Diego Symphony, it is pretty hard to get the chance to perform as a soloist. This is one of the reasons Vizuet found the inspiration to start a group like Musica Vitale where there could be a platform for “exposing individual talent.”

Musica Vitale is also able to cater to the typical consumer where other performers of this style cannot. “It is an exposure to high class music but without the dryness of formality,” said Vizuet.

For ticket information, please visit Tickets are also available to be purchased at the door the night of the performance but you cannot be guaranteed a ticket. Discounts and ticket packages, however, are only offered online. If you have any questions, please call (619) 519-4408 

It’s a concert you will not want to miss!
