Trio Napolincanto Concert Kicks Off Festa Italiana
8/31/2011
Kick off the 33rd Annual Festa Italiana with Trio Napolincanto’s “Holy Happiness,” a concert of traditional Italian music and storytelling from Naples. The concert will be held the evening before the Festa Italiana at 6:30 p.m., Oct. 13 in the University of St. Thomas Jones Hall, 3910 Yoakum.

Founded in 1997, the award-winning Trio Napolincanto invites us to rediscover the beauty and the universal message of Neapolitan songs. Through a form of theater involving song and storytelling, the Trio highlights the story of a great people, the longing for the infinite and the appreciation for what is truly human.

Musicians include Gianni Aversano of Naples, Italy, Founder of Trio Napolincanto, singer, guitarist and songwriter; Domenico De Luca of Naples, composer and guitarist; Ferdinando Piscopo of Naples, composer and mandolinist.

The event is hosted in collaboration with the University of St. Thomas, the Italian Cultural & Community Center and Crossroads Cultural Center-Houston. Italian refreshments will be provided by Festa Italiana after the concert. A $5 donation at the door is suggested.
