In a resounding performance that left fans ecstatic, Ricky Martin packed the Altos de Chavón amphitheater during his symphonic concert, establishing an immediate connection with the audience as soon as he stepped onto the stage. On Saturday, September 2, the Puerto Rican artist radiated joy, ease, and professionalism, unveiling intricately rehearsed dance routines.
Martin appeared dressed in black and white sneakers at 9:35 PM, opening with Pégate. Accompanied by three screens displaying fitting visuals, the crowd sang to hits like Volverás, Gracias por Pensar, and Fuego de Noche.
Maestro José Antonio Molina, a Dominican native, led a group of 54 musicians from the National Symphony Orchestra who accompanied Ricky Martin on stage. Their impeccable sound, arrangements, elegance, and discipline earned Martin’s “thank yous” throughout the night.
The fan base was notably diverse. In addition to Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, Venezuelans, Brazilians, and other nationalities were scattered among the stone seats.
“Thank you for your love; may this be the first of many,” Ricky Martin expressed during his concert, which featured four wardrobe changes, including two white shirts, during the second intermission. The setlist included Disparo al Corazón, Casi un Bolero, Vuelo, El Amor de Mi Vida, Te extraño, Asignatura pendiente, and Vuelve.
Throughout the performance, orchestra members displayed their musical talents, including trumpet, trombone, bass, and violin players, who took center stage to showcase their skills, earning applause and ovations from the audience. Ricky Martin also thanked his band’s musical director, David Cabrera.
One emotional moment was when Martin proudly displayed the Dominican flag, expressing his love for the country.
