An Invitation to …..

I am so pleased to announce that I will be recording this summer a lovely group of arias and songs for a new release on ITUNES, due for Oct.10, Verdi’s Birthday.

Growing up I was always fascinated with Rosa Ponselle.  She at about my same age, made a series of recordings in her own home in Baltimore, MD of fond remembrance for me, The Villa Pace.

She sang everything and anything in her amazing voice and she accompanied herself on piano for much of it.  Enough music for two albums.

I will have piano, but also several other arrangements and instruments, and it will include things that I love to sing, arias from operas I have not yet sung.

And it won’t be in my home, but in a theater.

Some surprises to be sure!  If it can be worked out there will also be bonus discs, some video, and a special edition “Vinyl” album limited issue.

This is such fun!!!   But you know, I have always felt so emotionally raw for recordings.  It last long after we are dust.  So very important to give your best.

So stay tuned, and I hope to leave a document for those who love my singing of how I sounded circa 2013.

So little recording is done these days, and I have this lovely opportunity to share with all my friends and family and fans a “little music from the heart”

In honor of Verdi I am earmarking a percentage be given to Verdi’s Casa Di Riposo in Milano.  The man built a home for retired opera singers so they could live out their days

in dignity.  How much I love him.

 

More info to come and several other lovely announcements…..

Christmas Concert for Hurricane Relief Victims

•November 25, 2012 • Comments Off on Christmas Concert for Hurricane Relief Victims

 New York, forever in my heart and soul, my birth place- went through a devastating time. Hurricane Sandy wreaked a lot of havoc up and down the eastern seaboard.  My wonderful Pastor, Father Peter Colapietro has graciously allowed me to present a concert in Holy Cross Church on Dec. 16th at 7 PM as a benefit with the proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy Relief.  The horror and the loss is overwhelming for so many in Statten Island and Long Beach, whole towns were washed into the sea. So, as all New Yorkers do, we stick together and we help pick ourselves up.

Please join me and hear some fabulous young voices, terrific musicians, lots of opera and Italian art songs, a rare peek and listen to my sisters new Musical CONNECTIONS which just had  a successful Kickstarter campaign and will be presented in a limited run in New York in the spring. A few surprises as well if all goes as I plan.   Come and help out your fellow New Yorkers, spend some time with me in a beautiful Church at Christmas time, lets sing together and look forward to a brighter and more fabulous 2013.  The 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth. Music saves everything, and after the New Year is rung in I will have some fun things to share as well.

Click below and go buy some tickets……. it is going to be a great night……
