West Seattle based opera tenor, Jose Iniguez is about to embark on a childhood dream. Raised in the orchard fields of Mattawa, WA, Jose Iniguez is the creator of the music program Encanto, which Iniguez describes as “a cultural journey that combines the ethereal beauty of opera aria, with classical piano and mariachi bolero.” Iniguez recently performed at the Moore Theatre in downtown Seattle to an enthusiastic audience. Encanto recently won best Directors Choice Award from Univision Seattle Latin Music Award in the summer of 2016.
Regarding his nearly sold out Encanto concert at the historic downtown Moore Theatre, Eastern Washington University Vice President Michael Westfall who is a longtime supporter said, “The Encanto program is fantastic, and it is a must see to anyone who enjoys live music. The blend of music and his voice is spine tingling.” After seeing Iniguez perform at the Moore Theater, Program Director of the Robert Lang Studio & Academy, Marlie Pesek, remarked, “Jose has that spark that people look for when they go see a concert.”
Iniguez is now recording his first studio album at the Robert Lang Studios. The album, which he will title when it is finished this spring, will be a milestone for his music career. The album will be submitted to the Latin Grammy Awards and the Latin Music Awards for consideration. “I would have never thought that a boy who used to sing as he picked apples in the orchards of Mattawa would be able to have this opportunity,” says Iniguez about his personal journey.
For supporters, Jose plans an intimate concert on February 14th at the Robert Lang Studio & Academy. Staying true to his personal style of involving the community, attendees will vote on the songs to be included in his upcoming album. “It is the way I grew up,” says Iniguez. Coming from a migrant farm working family of eleven children, Jose said that family members all had a role in his music career. “It only makes sense to broaden that input to include the broader community,” Iniguez says of his decision to have his fans choose the songs that will forever be recorded on his first major album.
