The sounds of live holiday music will fill the air at Richardson Park next Monday (Dec. 10) at 7 p.m. when the Wilton Manors Business Association and The Muse production company present “Holiday Spectacular In the Park.”

The family-friendly outdoor concert features America’s Got Talent’s Yoli Mayor, The Bombshell’s Heather Lundstedt, and internationally-celebrated tenor Jonathan Hawkins, who will also direct the show.

In addition, there will be appearances from an array of local talent, including Tommy Paduano, LeNora Jaye, Antonio Edwards, as well as Jennifer McClain (2017 & 2018 SFGN Best Artist/Musician).

Hawkins has directed and performed around the world, including the Cathedral of Notre Dame and the Lincoln Center. From the ancient Greek Theatre at Epidaurus to the world-famous Birdland Jazz Club, he has become one of the most sought-after crossover tenors with his “tour de force” voice.

He last appeared in South Florida as the artistic director of Our Night Out, as well as performances at GLBX’s ArtopiaEl Tucán in Miami, and Andrea Bocelli’s One Night in Central Park Revisited at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.

“To produce what hopefully will become an annual tradition for the first time in Richardson Park is a great honor. But what is even more exciting is the line-up of talent I’ll be joined by,” Hawkins said. “This community is so lucky to have some remarkable local artists, and I am overjoyed to share the stage with them for what is sure to be an incredible evening filled with holiday spirit!”

“This is the perfect opportunity for the whole community to come together and share in the spirit of love, giving and caring that our one-of-a-kind island city, Wilton Manors, is known for,” said Tim Moffitt, president of the Wilton Manors Business Association. “It will be a beautiful early evening event for the whole family to enjoy top quality entertainment in one of our beautiful parks.”
