Award-winning Italian Tenor Michéal Castaldo and Friends will perform “Christmas in Italia,” a fundraiser for the Richwood United Methodist Church, 111 Richwood Rd., Richwood/Mullica Hill, NJ 08062, on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 3pm. This concert is a fundraiser, and 100% of all ticket sales will benefit the Richwood United Methodist Church.

Pastor Steven C. Herman and Mildred Herman are proud to host “Christmas in Italia,” a traditional Italian Christmas Concert featuring award-winning Italian tenor Michéal Castaldo and Friends who will perform classic Christmas carols from his chart-topping best-selling album, “Extravergine: Christmas in the Mediterranean,” accompanied by his String Quartet.

This concert will capture your heart and imagination with the spirit of the holidays in the beautiful Richwood United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. 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. 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. Most songs are sung in Italian with a few sung in English and Latin as well.

The production value of this concert is in excess of $75 per ticket, but due to the generous support of its principal sponsors, Caterina and Vernon Dawson, plus many businesses in the community, the tickets will be available for only $25 for general seating.
