"This concert will capture your heart and imagination with the spirit of the holidays and the old world charm of a traditional Italian Christmas," said Gina Biancardi, founder of Casa Belvedere, who is supporting the concert with a VIP reception after the concert, which has preserved old world traditions for years of families who have celebrated there since the Italian cultural foundation was founded in 2009. "Even those who don't speak Italian will be moved by the setting, the songs, and by Micheal's powerful and melodic voice."

The "Extravergine CD" offers sacred, liturgical carols sung in Italian or Latin. Seasonal favorites 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 himself also translated the well-known Polish carol, "Jezus Malusuenki" now entitled, "Piccolo Jesu." Completing the perfect package, Castaldo will sing "Gloria in Excelsis Deo," "Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle," "Va Pensiero," and "Adeste Fideles."
