“O Sole Trio,” a Classical/Broadway/Pop crossover group, features soprano Erin Shields, baritone Giuseppe Spoletini and versatile David Shenton, who simultaneously plays piano and violin while singing.

They are to perform as part of the Canyon Sounds Performance Series at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 22, at Gold Canyon United Methodist Church, 6640 S. Kings Ranch Road. Tickets and information are at goldcanyonarts.org.

“Their show, ‘From Pavarotti to Pop,’ has a wonderfully eclectic repertoire from Puccini’s ‘O Mio Babbino Caro’ to  ‘Al Di La,’ ‘I’ve Got The World On A String,’ ‘The Prayer,’ film scores (‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s,’ ‘Moonstruck’, ‘An Affair To Remember’) and even a Doo Wop Medley,” according to a release.

“Their showmanship is deliciously witty with innovative arrangements that breathe new life into the world’s favorite tunes. They have sold out major venues such as Carnegie hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and California’s Redland Bowl,” the release states.

Tickets are also available — by check or cash only — at Canyon Rose Storage, 6405 S. Kings Ranch Road in Gold Canyon; and the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce, 567 W. Apache Trail.
