This concert will capture your heart and imagination with the spirit of the holidays in the beautiful New Dorp Moravian Church, circa 1763, the 2nd oldest church in Staten Island, second only to St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Historic Richmondtown. The church’s amazing acoustics and warm atmosphere and festive lighting make for great music making.

Even those who do not 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. Castaldo’s performances are enchanting, heartfelt, and authentic. This will be Micheal’s 5th Christmas concert in Staten Island. 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,” “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” and “Adeste Fideles.”

Michéal with also again be joined by a special guest and a string quartet! Tenor Andrew Kay will sing a festive piece as well as a duet with Castaldo.
