Medallion Opera House Presents: Singer/Songwriter Carlos Olmeda
March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Medallion Opera House is pleased to present Carlos Angeles Olmeda who will perform live on Saturday, March 23rd at 7 pm, at the Gorham Town Hall, 20 Park Street, Gorham. Tickets are $12/adult and $8/student (18 & under) and will be available in advance at the Gorham Town Hall, White Mountain Café & Bookstore and online at www.medallionoperahouse.org.
Carlos hails proudly from the acoustic singer/songwriter school of performance. The big difference between Carlos’ songwriting and
performance styles and that of so many others is that Carlos’ music transports you to a wide spectrum of emotional and cultural destinations. It is almost inevitable that after his show, a fan will approach Carlos and say with genuine enthusiasm, “Wow! That was definitely not what I was expecting. How is it that you can change gears so effortlessly throughout your show?” He is quick to point out that Tri-cultural Pop is all about changing gears and realigning perspectives.
“My mother was always putting on this old, scratchy LP called Music
From Around The Globe, and I would sit mesmerized at how beautifully
diverse each song sounded. I believe that being born in Puerto Rico in
1960 spared me from the dreary fate of becoming a genre purist. It all
boils down to one thing: will the song I’m playing for you at this very
moment in time, move you?”
On any given night, fans can hear at least four different songwriting
styles in at least two languages performed with heartfelt passion as well
as sense of humor. Carlos has the innate ability to make each fan feel as
if the song was written for and sung directly to them. After the first two
or three songs, you begin to feel as though Carlos is in your living room. It feels like home!
