2019 has almost arrived and with it come several local events to welcome the new year. Here's a look at three fun upcoming cultural performances in Chandler this January:
Zoppé: An Italian Family Circus Since 1842
Start your year off with the Zoppé Italian Family Circus from January 2nd to the 6th at the Chandler Center. Formed 160 years ago by French street performer Napoline Zoppé and his wife Ermenegilda, this family circus has toured all over Europe and was revived by Napoline's great, great grandson Giovanni. Come witness for yourself a variety of performers including acrobats, equestrians, and clowns supported by family-owned dogs and horses. Tickets range between $15 and $40.
Sonoran Sunset Series at Veteran's Oasis Park
Once a month the Veterans Oasis Park comes to life with free music provided by the Sonoran Sunset Series. On January 17th come out and enjoy the sounds of Rockin' Memories, a group devoted to the music of the 50s and 60s. Bruce and Pam have experience in jazz, funk, rock, big band, blues, and country so all audiences can enjoy this community show. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs, and coolers for the event, beginning at 6 pm.
Finally, on January 18th the Chandler Center will be hosting Pink Martini, a Latin, Mambo, chanteuse, and jazz-inspired musical performance. A small, 12-person orchestra led by singer China Forbes will perform modern Americana, drawing influence from mid-twentieth century Hollywood musicals. This big band has entertained audiences all around the world and will be in Chandler for one night only. Tickets range between $46 and $76 and the show begins at 7:30 pm.
