The concert series will feature traditional zarzuelas, boleros and música Navideña that have broad appeal. (Zarzuela is a Spanish lyric dramatic opera genre alternating between spoken and sung scenes, and bolero is slow tempo Latin music.)

Oh!'s sensational singers participating in the concert series are Claudia Chapa, Octavio Moreno and James Rodriguez, with a guest appearance by Patrick Contreras.
