Friends of Music at St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church will present the operatic pop group Tra Fratelli in concert at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Tra Fratelli (“Among Brothers”) is the brainchild of University of Arizona Voice Professor Grayson Hirst and four young tenors: Humberto Borboa, Brandon Dale, Bryce Rodriguez and Edgar Ricaud.

Each has operatic training and experience but also an appreciation for the lighter side of classical singing — the music with which artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Il Divo and even The Three Tenors have been enchanting audiences over the past few decades.

The program features solo arias by each artist in addition to romantic quartets. The concert will be held in the church, 4440 N. Campbell Ave. at East River Road.

Rodriguez, born and raised in Tucson, is a Salpointe Catholic High School graduate and former football player.

Borboa hails from Mexico and has performed throughout his native country and abroad. He was recently seen in the UA production of “Die Fledermaus.”

Dale comes from Portland, Ore. He has sung for mass at the Vatican among other international appearances, and will perform in the upcoming UA presentation of “Die Zauberflöte.”

Ricaud, from Nogales, Mexico, has appeared in operas and Spanish zarzuelas at the UA.

Admission is a suggested donation of $15 to St. Philip’s Friends of Music, though no one is turned away for inability to pay.

Parking is available in the north parking lot or under the solar covered parking structure on the east side. The office phone is 299-6421.
