Award-winning singer and PBS/WNET and NY affiliates Host for Andrea Bocelli "Live From Central Park" and "Il Volo Takes Flight" CRISTINA FONTANELLI brings her program of Italy's best-loved songs, arias, Neapolitan and Christmas classics during her 10th-Annual "Christmas In Italy" concert at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center on Saturday, December 7 at 3:00 PM the culmination of the Year of Italian Culture in the United States which was designated by the Italian government.

This year's concert will also honor several living WWII Italian-American veterans in memory of Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, 1941. Acclaimed actor Tony Lo Bianco will read a special memorial poem in honor of the veterans and PBS-TV's Jim Masters will emcee. Called a "vocal genius" by the New York Sun, Ms. Fontanelli's show is a love letter to her Italian heritage and a tribute to her grandparents. "I decided to begin this annual Holiday tradition to preserve Italy's great classic and popular song heritage and to teach them and the values they represent to younger generations." says Ms. Fontanelli. The BMCC Tribeca PAC is located at 199 Chambers St. (between Greenwich and West Streets) in New York City.
