It was fate that brought Daniel Rodriquez, a New York police officer, into the spotlight after September 11, 2001.  While a country in mourning looked for answers, his stirring a cappella renditions of “God Bless America” and the National Anthem brought renewed hope to America and introduced Rodriquez to the international stage.  Since that memorable performance Rodriguez’s touring has brought a myriad of experiences, including the 2002 Winter Olympics, a PBS Memorial Day Concert, regional opera, numerous television appearances and meeting his bride, New Zealand soprano Marla Kavanaugh.  

Kavanaugh is an established opera performer and recitalist, with credits including a performance with Plácido Domingo and the Los Angeles Opera.  The couple now concertize together performing a diverse musical program encompassing musical styles from opera to popular song. 

The Tonto Community Concert Association is committed to bringing quality entertainment to the Rim Country through an annual concert series and support of the fine arts in Payson schools.  This series is intended as an enriching cultural experience for the people of Payson and those in surrounding communities.
