Arts United Presents ‘Alexander and the Birds of Paradise’

ArtsUnited kicks off the New Year with the first of four concerts that are “Celebrating Diversity,” with “Alexander and the Birds of Paradise” at 8pm on Saturday, January 27 at the Sunshine Cathedral for the Performing Arts, 1480 SW 9th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale.

Alexander Zenoz, a first-generation Cuban American who was born and raised in Miami, a city well-known for its rich artistic and musical heritage, leads the ensemble of exceptional singers and musicians. Highlighting individuality within the community, Alexander and the Birds of Paradise promises a unique and unforgettable experience that celebrates the diversity of life through music and art. In a one-of-a-kind performance and inspired by the spirit of the greatest showman, this concert aims to provide thought-provoking entertainment that sets it apart from other shows. The fusion of captivating melodies and powerful vocals will transport the audience into a world of wonder and enchantment.

I sat down with Alexander and asked him what the show would be about and he said: “This show is a testament to all the things I feel that have crafted me into the artist I am today. I’m excited to take this new opportunity and platform and share it with the local community. I really wanted to create something that everyone could find something they enjoyed in it, and I really feel we accomplished that — while still keeping a refreshing and energetically new perspective and form to what people already love and know. Yet, going above and beyond to insure its unlike any of the other shows or concerts that are  being put up locally. A concoction of musical and artistic brilliance- bringing together Singers, musicians, dancers, visual arts, and special effects in this journey through art and music, while highlighting local arts and artist.”

For more than 10 years, Zenoz has worked professionally as an artist throughout Florida, New York, and California. Zenoz brings a deep understanding and appreciation for the vibrant cultural framework around him. He has performed as a soloist with the Symphony of the Americas at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, starred as the opening act for Deborah Cox at the SAVE Organization’s annual fundraising gala at the New World Center and featured in local film and television.

“This performance is part of our series of concerts titled “Celebrating Diversity,” that feature a unique blend of artists from the LGBTQ+ community,” said Chuck Williams, president of ArtsUnited, the largest LGBTQ+ visual and performing arts nonprofit organization in Florida. “We are excited to bring this series to the community and thank our sponsors for making it possible.”
