ST. PETERSBURG, FL, December 12, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Alliance Francaise de Sarasota is pleased to announce that internationally renowned tenor, Joe Spinella, will perform at the holiday festivities and closing reception for their French Cultural Photography Exhibition. Spinella will headline at the Joyeux Noel concert on December 20, 2013. He performs many yuletide favorites, such as 'O Holy Night' and 'Winter Wonderland,' and audience participation is encouraged. Caroling sheet music will be provided so everyone can sing along.---
"We thought that in order of the festivities, a traditional caroling show would be fun," states Joe. "I will be doing 'Cantique de Noel,' which is the French version of 'O Holy Night.' It is a Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem 'Minuit Chretiens' by Placide Cappeau. It has become a standard carol for solo performance and has a big an operatic finish. But the rest of the songs will be in English to accommodate the audience."
Additionally, he will be performing some highlights from his show, illusionAria, set to go on tour in 2014. The lively, entertaining music is mesmerizing and audiences invariably offer standing ovations hoping for an encore.
"My goal is for people to leave my shows feeling better than they did when they first came in," says Joe. "I am so glad to be able to perform at Alliance Francaise. And I am happy to support their photo exhibition and the Towles Court Artwalk."
Joseph Spinella is a dramatic tenor with a love of magic. Having studied magic for many years, he is the only classically trained tenor who sings and performs magic onstage. His performances are engaging and whimsical, combining everyone's favorite Italian songs with magic illusions.
His full-length show, illusionAria, combines powerful, tenor vocals and orchestral music with jaw-dropping magic illusions. Interspersed with circus acts and dancing, illusionAria is courageously innovative and unlike any other show today. A loose storyline line of a boy searching for his true love is told in song and magic. One new English song in the show, 'You Can Trust in Me,' was written and produced by Joe Vulpis, of AP Music Entertainment.
Songs from the show are available on his CD, 'Spinella Tenor of Illusions.' The singles, 'Trust in Me' and 'Never Stopped Loving You' are available on Amazon.com and iTunes by searching on Spinella Tenor.
Spinella's songs have been featured on various radio stations in the U.S. The album features classical crossover and traditional music that exemplifies classic Neapolitan songs. Backed by the Emmy-award winning, Macedonia Radio Symphony Orchestra, this all-Italian album contains 13 songs and displays Spinella's mastery of bell'arte del canto.
Joseph Spinella is a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, with a major in voice. He has participated in Master Classes with Birgit Nielsen, Eleanor Steber, and Regina Resnik. His tenor voice quality was described by Princeton's weekly newspaper, Town Topics, as "a solid Metropolitan Opera level performer."
