NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Italian Heritage and Culture month kicks off with a glorious musical celebration on Sunday, October 4th, at 3:00 pm in the Ossie Davis Theater of the New Rochelle Public Library. Tenor Vincent Ricciardi, who won great praise at his premier concert at the library, returns with his wife, soprano Emily Wright-Ricciardi, for a program of Italian and American favorites. Grand Opera, Musical Theater, the American Song Book – the talented duet sing it all. Vincent & Emily Ricciardi have performed together throughout the tristate area. Their love of Puccini, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Mozart, and Gershwin is shared with their audiences in each show. Their performances also highlight repertoires of Mario Lanza, Julie Andrews, Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion, and many others. Nino Pantano of the Italian Voice wrote that Vincent & Emily are “two of the most promising and talented performers today. Vincent Ricciardi’s lyric tenor is blessed with a smooth and easy top and gives the listener much to savor. Emily Wright-Ricciardi’s secure and saucy soprano is a model of elegance.”

A donation of $2.00 is suggested at the door. The concert is made possible by the Friends of the New Rochelle Public Library,
