One of the most popular events of the annual Newton Arts Festival, Musical Café is in its third year. Every time it’s a different theme – from Hollywood Style, to Broadway Style to Italian Style this year. Over 40 artists – singers, dancers, fashion models, designers, photographers, videographers and audio engineers put a lot of love and work into bringing the show to the audience. During these unprecedented times, when we cannot be together, this event is bringing us closer to each other. Thanks to its virtual nature, critically-acclaimed artists from the Boston area will be joined by guest artists from all over the world, culminating in the final song, performed by 16 artists from 9 countries. The repertoire is a tribute to the Italian culture, spanning several centuries and featuring the most popular and beautiful melodies of all time – from opera, to Neapolitan song, to Bocelli, Sinatra, Modugno, Cutugno, and others.
We welcome the audience on ZOOM to interact with the artists “live”, and participate in a photo contest.
Winners will be announced “live” during the show and will receive prizes!
Presenting Sponsor – The Village Bank. Main Sponsors – St. Mary of Carmen Society and Center Makor. This event is made possible in part by the Newton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
