Isaias Acosta: Isaias Acosta has been performing since he was a young boy. From piano recitals to high school solo and ensemble. Performance has been ingrained in him. In college he was privileged to perform with ” The Singing Statesmen” at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire as well as the Acapella group associated with that all male chorus known as “The Innocent Men”. While in Nevada County Isaias has had the opportunity to perform on stage in musical productions including: “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee“, “Assassins“, ” Music Man“, “Avenue Q“, and “Company” all produced by Sierra Stages. After performing in an original production “Doo-wop Shoo-bop” At the Off Broad Street theater Isaias’ love of close harmonic singing was rekindled. Isaias’ current performance endeavor, The Consolations was born, as many good things are, from lucky happenstance and years of preparation. The current and past members of the group make up many decades of performance experience, and Isaias is delighted and blessed to share such experience with you!
