Joseph to Celebrate U.S. Release of “Be My Love: A Tribute To Mario Lanza” with Concert at City Winery in Collaboration with the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival on October 11
On the heels of his success at London’s legendary Last Night of the BBC Proms this past weekend—which was broadcast live on television, radio, online, and in cinemas across the U.K.—Joseph Calleja, “arguably today’s finest lyric tenor” (NPR), returns to the Big Apple on Thursday, October 11 to perform selections from his new Decca Classics recording, Be My Love: A Tribute to Mario Lanza, in a concert with orchestra at City Winery in downtown Manhattan. The event, which marks the Maltese tenor’s only New York appearance during the 2012-13 season, is being presented in collaboration with the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival and comes two days after the U.S. release of the new recording (Tuesday, October 9). Steven Mercurio, who leads the BBC Concert Orchestra on the album, will also conduct the New York performance. Tickets for the 8 PM concert range from $25 to $45 and will be available for purchase through the City Winery’s website beginning this Thursday, September 13.
