O SOLE TRIO

 

O Sole Trio is a new, vibrant musical ensemble that has brought their exhilarating and unique show capturing the essence of the Italian-American songbook to numerous venues throughout North America and beyond. The trio has garnered rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Their most recent credits include a performance on Fox 5’s Good Day New York with Rosanna Scotto and Dave Price, as well as a standing room only engagement at their Lincoln Center début at The David Rubenstein Atrium with their show From Prima Donna to Post-Madonna: How Italy and Italian Americans Influenced American Popular Music. In addition, O Sole Trio was chosen to perform for NY State Comptroller John Liu and his distinguished guests for his recent event honoring Italian American Heritage and Culture.

 

The New York based ensemble features the lush voices of soprano Erin Shields and baritone Giuseppe Spoletini, as well as the versatile and virtuosic David Shenton on piano and violin. O Sole Trio's shows are both touching and humorous, featuring a program that showcases a cornucopia of beloved Italian opera arias, Neapolitan songs as well as jazz and pop standards made popular by such singers as Louis Prima, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Connie Francis and Andrea Bocelli. They breathe new life into these familiar favorites with their unique and innovative arrangements.

 

In June 2013, they took their show overseas to international audiences at two famous venues in the UK, Dame Cleo Laine’s Music in the Garden Festival in Wavendon and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London.

O Sole Trio made their Carnegie Hall debut in June 2014 to a sold out audience. They tour frequently around the United States. Their most recent performance at The Redlands Bowl in CA brought in an audience of almost 6,000 people. O Sole Trio was recently asked back by Lincoln Center to perform two shows in August 2014 for Lincoln Center Local.
