CRISTINA FONTANELLI  (https://cristinafontanelli.combrings her program of Italy’s best-loved songs, arias, Neapolitan and Christmas classics during her 19th-Annual “Christmas In Italy®” concert on Saturday, December 17 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.  The concert is a 501 c-3 charitable production giving young people performance opportunities and raising funds for St. Jean's and children's causes such as St. Jude's Hospital.  Called a “Vocal genius” by the New York Sun, Ms. Fontanelli’s annual musical vision is a love letter to her Italian heritage and a tribute to her grandparents.  “I began this beloved annual Holiday tradition to preserve Italy’s great classic and popular songs and to teach them, and more importantly the values they represent, to younger generations. And help audiences experience the joy of growing up Italian at Christmastime.  We celebrate the fact that we have not missed one year, not even during the humanitarian crisis of the corona virus affecting the whole world, "Christmas in Italy®" takes on even more of a importance for continuing, in addition to be highly entertaining as audiences have become accustomed to for the past 19 years ” says Ms. Fontanelli. [HEADLINE:] “Cristina Fontanelli, Preserving Values Through Opera” The Epoch TimesJanuary 2014   http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/395522-cristina-fontanelli-preserving-values-through-opera/  Matthew Cerillo - Guest tenor; Matthew Hayden, accompanist, David Galvez, guitarist; Grammy nominated Bill Schimmel, accordionist; mandolinist Joyce Balint (Metropolitan Opera/NY Philharmonic).  The youth of the Dream Studio for the Performing Arts (Staten Island; Melissa Ottaviano/founder) will dance to "Dominick the Donkey".  The Genesis Choir of Xaverian High School (6th - 8th Grades) will sing "Let it Snow" and the traditional Italian Christmas Carol "Tu scendi dalle stelle", led by Professor Zoe Vinegar.
