HOLIDAY FUNDRAISER

 

I am very grateful to all of you for your past support of I GIULLARI DI PIAZZA which has helped us reach OUR 35THANNIVERSARY! 

 

We now need the help of all our supporters because our organization has again been denied our yearly grant from the New York State Council on the Arts which we had received since 1982!   This grant has made it possible for us to present our programs to the Italian Communities throughout New York State.  Without this grant we are facing a $5,000 deficit for the 2016 fiscal year.

 

For this reason, we are holding our annual Christmas Benefit:

DECEMBER 7 AT 7 PM

ITALIAN AMERICAN MUSEUM 

155 MULBERRY STREET. NEW YORK NY

ADMISSION $60

 

Contact Abelloni@aol.com for more information

 

We will present excerpts from our Christmas show LA CANTATA DEI PASTORI, serve food & wine, and will honor our special supporters. There will be a raffle, and books and CDs available for purchase.  

The funds that we will raise will go towards the expenses of the full production of our beloved and audience favorite Neapolitan Renaissance Christmas show LA CANTATA DEI PASTORI (the Shepherds Cantata), opening Dec. 16 at Theater for the New City.

Rhythm is the Cure Workshop

Rhythm is the Cure is an intensive healing workshop featuring Southern Italian ritual dances used as music and dance therapy for centuries throughout the Mediterranean. Participants will learn the unique style of tambourine playing and the ancient healing trance dance of the tarantella, used to cure the mythical bite of the tarantula.

The number of participants and length of the workshop can be customized to your needs--one day to 10 days is possible.

Contact Alessandra for more details and to discuss programming Rhythm is the Cure near you!

Give to I Giullari di Piazza

I Giullari di Piazza is a non-profit organization based in the State of New York devoted to presenting authentic Southern Italian music/dance/theater dating back to the 13th century. For over 30 years the group has created new musical and theatrical works based on folk music and dance, ritual theater, and commedia dell' arte. The group's founders Alessandra Belloni (vocals, percussion, ritual dance) and John T. La Barbera (chitarra battente - Renaissance folk guitar, mandolin) have spent many years researching the songs, dances, and ritual chants of southern Italy. The Italian-born Alessandra Belloni, called a “Mediterranean volcano,” is regarded as an important voice in traditional southern Italian music and dance today.

If you make a contribution, with your permission, we would include you as one of our sponsors in our concert programs.
