Divalicious! is the vocal ensemble of Gina Haver, Ruthann Turekian and Leslie Valentine with Daniel Ragone as Music Director/Pianist. They have brought programs to the public that showcases their versatility in presenting selections from the operatic realm as well as from Broadway and the Great American Songbook. Whether it's Mozart, Andrew Lloyd Webber or anything in between, they deliver performances that thrill and entertain audiences.

Divalicious! has appeared at many LI libraries including Sachem, Northport, Northshore and Huntington as well as concert series at Old South Haven Presbyterian Church and the Music on the Sound series at the First Presbyterian Church of Port Jefferson. In addition, they were featured at the Italian Heritage and Cultural Festival sponsored by the Sons of Italy at the Smithtown Historical Society Fairgrounds. Visit Divalicious! on FB at Vocal Ensemble LI and at www.DanielRagone.com.

This year, Divalicious! welcomes a special guest performer - Bass Baritone Ron Meixsell. His most noted performances were leading baritone roles with The New York Grand Opera, five German Lieder recitals at The Bruno Walter Auditorium, a performance of Leoncavallo's La Boheme at Alice Tully Hall, and a performance as soloist in Carmina Burana with The Great Falls Symphony in Montana. Ron sang on WQXR Radio in remembrances of Arturo Toscanini.
