Mormon musical performances in Southern California

Father and son will unite in song next week in two Poway performances of Handel's "Messiah" oratorio.

Steve Blinco and his son, Michael Blinco, will be two of the four featured soloists in an Easter-themed concert presented at 7 p.m. March 19 and 20 at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts, 15498 Espola Road in Poway. The concert will feature the Poway Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' 70-member choir and soloists Anna Bjarnson-Carson and Jan Jensen.

Bass Steve Blinco has performed as a "Messiah" soloist all over Southern California and performed with the Southern California Mormon Choir. Baritone Michael Blinco, a recent vocal performance graduate from Chapman University Conservatory of Music and graduate of Rancho Bernardo High School, has performed in numerous operas in Orange County.
