Award-winning singer and PBS/WNET and NY affiliates host for Andrea Bocelli “Live From Central Park” and “Il Volo Takes Flight,” Cristina Fontanelli brings her program of Italy’s best-loved songs, arias, Neapolitan and Christmas classics during her 3rd-Annual “Christmas In Italy®” concert.
Called a “vocal genius” by the New York Sun, Ms. Fontanelli’s show is a love letter to her Italian heritage and a tribute to her grandparents. “I decided to begin this annual Holiday tradition to preserve Italy’s great classic and popular song heritage and to teach them and the values they represent to younger generations.” says Ms. Fontanelli.
For this special one-day event, Ms. Fontanelli will be accompanied by piano, mandolins, guitar and accordion in order to evoke the authentic Italian flavor of the music.
