“Christmas In Italia” will capture your heart and imagination with the spirit of the holidays in the beautiful century-old, Blessed Sacrament Church in the Yonge & Lawrence area of Toronto. Even those who do not speak Italian will be moved by the setting, the songs, and Michéal’s powerful and melodic voice. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, 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. If you enjoy Andrea Bocelli or Josh Groban, you will definitely enjoy Michéal Castaldo. This will be Michéal’s second Christmas concert in Toronto. 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,” “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” and “Adeste Fideles.”
As Fr. Larry Marcille, pastor of Blessed Sacrament Church, states, “The magnificence of this House of Prayer, remarkable for its Gothic architecture, monumental marble altar towering in the sanctuary, and the elegance of the unique stained-glass windows flooding natural light throughout the interior of the church, enhanced by the majestic sound of the restored piper organ, will dazzle the senses and inspires one and all to praise and glorify God.” For more information visit www.blessedsacramenttoronto.ca
Fr. Larry recalls, “I heard Michéal Castaldo sing a the funeral mass for the late Ontario Supreme Court Judge Lorenzo Di Cecco in 2017. He immediately captured my attention with his magnificent voice and reverent presence as he sang beautiful hymns. We are so excited to offer the Blessed Sacrament Church as his venue, for Michéal to bring the Christmas message of love to the hearts of all present, helping us to prepare for the celebration of the birth of Christ.”
Majestic Castle Music Productions and Blessed Sacrament Church are partnering to help promote the Italian culture and heritage at this Italian Christmas Concert while raising funds to help our Out of the Cold Program, St. Vincent de Paul, and ShareLife reach their fundraising goals for 2019.
Immediately following the concert, refreshments and an olive oil tasting will be served at Blessed Sacrament Church Hall, featuring a meet and greet with the artist.
