"I am so excited to be returning to the stage after this past year's battle with cancer.The music will be my favorites: Rachmaninoff, Gershwin & American hymns and the venue is the beautiful Stuart Auditorium at Lake Junaluska. The piano will be their elegant 9' Steinway.I will be joined by Broadway veteran Mark Morales who will sing some terrific music of Broadway."  David Troy Francis


Mark began his career in show business as a scholarship dancer with the Joffrey Ballet and Alvin Ailey and then performed in his first Broadway show, the revival of WEST SIDE STORY, starring as Chino, directed by Jerome Robbins and the legendary Leonard Bernstein. This was followed by Cats at the Shubert Theatre in Los Angeles, in the lead role of Munkustrap. He worked again with Andrew Lloyd Webber in SUNSET BOULEVARD, starring Glenn Close, where he originated the role of Victor Mature at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway while doing double-duty on the soap opera, ANOTHER WORLD. Mark now designs and builds round houses in Asheville for an extraordinary company, Deltec Homes, but still channels his “inner Diva”. He was recently seen inNaught But Nice performing the music of Cole Porter and Noel Coward, and as one of the fathers in a production of the opera Dead Man Walking. Mark can be heard on a CD of the show Lunch with Brian Stokes Mitchell, and has recently finished an album of his favorite Broadway songs in collaboration with David Troy Francis entitled Something’s Coming. A concert series embracing these songs, along with interesting back stories, has already debuted in several cities.
