This holiday concert will capture your heart and imagination with the spirit of the Christmas season. The beautiful Cedarview Church, dedicated to opportunities for service and pursuit of community will provide the perfect backdrop for an evening of fellowship and entertainment. Even those who don't speak Italian will be moved by the setting, the songs, and Michéal '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. Castaldos 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 Castaldos 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."
With the magnificent beauty of the Cedarveiw Church as his venue, Michéal will bring the Christmas message of love to the hearts of all present and will help us celebrate the joy of community and honour the memory of the late Lisa Dalpe. Majestic Castle Music Productions, the family of the late Lisa Dalpe and the Bawcutt Centre Advisory Committee for the County of Brant are partnering to memorialize Lisa in a most special way, while raising funds to help the Bawcutt Centre Advisory Committee reach its restoration fundraising goal.
