Applause Worthy!

Broadway performer enjoys judging Fiesta-val

Marc Dalio's route to Broadway took an interesting set of turns, some luck, and the support of his parents and mentors.

With a long list of professional theatrical credits, including starring roles in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Les Miserables, Pippin, West Side Story, South Pacific and others, Dalio - a choral judge for Fiesta-val - wasn't very interested in singing or theater growing up.


Little Happies

"The facilities and especially the auditorium are about as good as it gets, and the Fiesta-val staff did an outstanding job as usual."

- Otis Kitchen, Director of Bands-Emeritus, Elizabethtown College

"We have worked with Fiesta-val for over thirty plus years and have been pleased each and every time. They make it so easy in all forms of communication. Our family business always has Fiesta-val included in the yearly offerings to our music clientele looking for a fantastic competition experience. They continually strive to give music ensembles the best opportunity to showcase their talents at great venues."

- Jace McMahon, Jim Mulvihill Tours

"The students had an amazing trip and came home feeling very happy and proud. Thank you for all of the hard work you all put into making the event such a success."

- Melissa Donnelly, Treasurer, Brewer Music Association, Brewer High School
