Top vocalists from Bulgaria to perform Nov. 10 at Ocean Air School

On Nov. 10, from 6 to 9 p.m., the LA Bulgarian-American Cultural Center and a Torrey Hills resident, Vassya Valentino, present to the community two top vocalists from Bulgaria. The concert will be held at the Ocean Air MUR. The event goal is to introduce children and adults to the extremely rich and complex musical heritage of the land of Orpheus. The two-hour repertoire will consist of songs ranging from authentic Balkan folklore to classical arias and canzonets, jazz and pop.

Dessy Dobreva started her career as a student in the early 2000s as a solo singer for a Bulgarian show similar to Jay Leno’s Tonight Show. She is an honor graduate of the Berkelee School of Music in Boston. She is a professor at the Bulgarian Academy of Music. She is also a new mother of a 1-year-old son. Her music is unique with its vivid contemporary arrangement twist of the authentic Balkan folklore. http://youtu.be/3PLtculAdOA

In 1996, Ivailo Giurov won “Golden Orpheus,” the most prestigious award of the Bulgarian International Festival. He led 12 of the 13 rounds of the Bulgarian national contest “Sing With Me 2008.” His voice has wide tenor diapason which can be easily compared to the great Andrea Bocelli. He was under the mentorship of Luciano Pavarotti in 2005 and a lead soloist in the U.S. opera production company “Teatro Lyrico D’Europa” in 2007/08, which also performed in San Diego.  http://giurov.com/canzonettas.php

Both musicians have performed in front of stadiums and presidents, including Gorbachov and all over the world. Vassya Valentino is the host of this event and proud to present this unique quality concert to the local community that she has called home since 2007. Vassya Valentino and Stoyan Gogov, a family and immigrants from Bulgaria since 1996, also own a software company with an office just west of Torrey Hills. Their application “OfficeSuite” surpassed even “Angry Birds” just three weeks ago and now enjoys the position of being the top selling app on Google Play. They also have a 7-year-old son who attends Ocean Air Elementary School.

Ocean Air MUR is located at 11444 Canter Heights Drive, San Diego, 92130.
