Warwick - Next Friday evening, April 15, at 7, the Albert Wisner Public Library will present a musical performance, From Italy Con amore (With Love.) The repertoire will include operatic arias, favorite Neapolitan love songs and musical theatre pieces. This the third program in The Music of Friends series funded by the AWPL Foundation. Sharing the stage with tenor Salvatore Chiarelli will be award-winning soprano Elga Johannes. Chiarelli trained in both Italy and New York City. Having only begun his performing career four years ago, Chiarelli has already been heard on television and radio as well as on the opera stages of both North America and Europe. At the very outset of his vocal training, this tenor won an audition in Manhattan to be a soloist for a five-week concert tour of Italy. In the last three years, Chiarelli has performed in more than 200 concerts and shows in more than 150 town and cities in the tri-state area. Some of his recent operatic lead roles have been as Turridu in the opera Cavalleria Rusticana with Brooklyn Repertory Opera and as Canio in the Capital Opera’s production of I Pagliacci in Harrisburg, Pa. Roger Malouf, assistant conductor at The Metropolitan Opera House, has described Chiarelli’s voice as “inviting, heart-warming, vibrant and seductive.” If you go Registration is required to attend the performance of “From Italy Con Amore (With Love)” on Friday, April 15, at 7 p.m. in Albert Wisner Public Library.
