Join us on Sunday, Oct. 2 at 2 p.m. as the Port Washington Public Library and the John Michael Marino Lodge celebrate Italian-American heritage with a special musical event.
Gianvito Bottalico, who is a proud Italian-American, will perform both traditional Italian songs and arias from famous Italian operas, as well as other popular Italian and American songs by such artists as Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Louis Prima.
He has performed at many events throughout the New York City area, including Lions Club events, Knights of Columbus events, rehab centers, New York State Sons and Daughters of Italy events and Casa Belvedere in Staten Island and at the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum in Staten Island. Mr. Bottalico, who is also a talented sculptor and artist, has said, “Art in any form is an open window into the soul of the creator.”
This event is made possible through the OSDIA John Michael Marino Lodge #1389 and the John Michael Marino Foundation, both located here in Port Washington. Join us to celebrate the rich history of Italian-American culture. Refreshments will be served. Register at www.pwpl.org/events.
