O Sole Trio: Pavarotti To Pop
Tue, Mar 20 at 1:00 PM @ Ruth Eckerd Hall
O Sole Trio is a vibrant musical ensemble featuring the lush voices of soprano Erin Shields, baritone Giuseppe Spoletini along with the versatile and virtuosic David Shenton on piano and violin.
“Incredible fun!” and “A true tour de force,” O Sole Trio’s Pavarotti to Pop show celebrates The Great Italian Songbook. The show takes you on a musical journey, revealing how Italian Americans influenced the American popular music scene throughout the decades. From humorous storytelling to innovative and unique arrangements, this trio breathes new life into songs made famous by such legendary singers as Enrico Caruso, Louis Prima, Frank Sinatra, Connie Francis, Frankie Valli, Dion, and Andrea Bocelli, combining virtuosic musical feats (like David playing the piano and the violin at the same time!) with an accessible and engaging program of well-known classics. With two stellar voices, commanding piano accompaniment and 6 additional musicians, O Sole Trio’s show is fast-paced, funny and touching; no wonder they have had sold-out performances at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall!
Single tickets are priced at $35, $25 and $18.
Groups of 15 or more can purchase $18 tickets for $15 or $25 tickets for $20. For Group Sales, patrons are encouraged to contact the Group Sales Office at 727.712.2717.
