October 7, 2016 (Staten Island, NY) — “Merry Christmas - Buon Natale,” a traditional Christmas concert featuring award-winning Italian tenor Micheal Castaldo, will take place on Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 7:00p.m. at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish, 7396 Amboy Road, Staten Island, New York 10307.
Castaldo will perform classic Christmas carols from his chart-topping best-selling album, "Extravergine: Christmas in the Mediterranean," accompanied by the Castaldo String Quartet. This concert will capture your heart and imagination with the spirit of the holidays in the beautiful and modern Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Staten Island. Even those who don't speak Italian will be moved by the setting, the songs, and Micheal's powerful and melodic voice.
Over the past ten years, Michéal Castaldo has entertained more than 500,000 people across the USA, Canada, and Europe with creative and rousing renditions of classic Italian songs. Castaldo’s performances are enchanting, heartfelt, and authentic. He treats the audience to stories, spoken in English and Italian, in between songs that share moments from his Italian upbringing, tidbits about his musical journey, and insight that went into his song choices. All songs are sung in Italian with a few sung in English and Latin as well.
Live performance of songs from Castaldo’s Extravergine CD will include "Oh Santa Notte" (Oh Holy Night), "E Nato Il Bambino Gesu" (What Child Is This?), "Batte Nel Cuore, Suona Natale" (Little Drummer Boy), "Gioia Nel Mondo" (Joy To The World), "Puoi Sentire Quel' Che Sent Io?" (Do You Hear What I Hear?), and "Astro Del Ciel" (Silent Night). Castaldo translated the well-known Polish carol, "Jezus Malusuenki" now entitled, "Piccolo Jesu," which will also be featured along with "Gloria in Excelsis Deo," "Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle," "Va Pensiero," and "Adeste Fideles."
