Following a two month visit to his native Australia, ALFIO, the renowned singer, composer, musician and recording star who is regarded by many to be one of the great voices in contemporary music today, will make a return performance at The Triad Theatre in Manhattan tonight, May 24, at 7 PM.
The Sydney native, who now lives in New York, will perform an intimate show paying homage to his Italian heritage that will take the New York audience on a sentimental journey with much loved Italian and English classics that resonate around the world. ALFIO brings passion and emotion to every song, as well as a Modern Classical approach and a fresh contemporary style to these much-loved classics he introduces to a new generation of music lovers.
This young performer, who has built a huge following in a relatively few years on the concert circuit, is a refreshingly cool and modern throwback to the legendary singers to whom he is often compared. Until now, ALFIO has divided his time touring between Australia, North America, Europe and Asia, rapidly gaining fans all over the globe who respond to his powerful vocals and live shows. He was classically trained in Parma, Italy.
An accomplished songwriter, musician and composer, ALFIO is achieving acclaim with his own songs, such as “Il Nostro Sogno,” a song about a wish for world peace which is currently being recorded and released by other artists around the world. This hit single pushed his debut album on Warner Music Australia to Top 10 and Gold status in Australia. “Voca Pura” is his tribute to Luciano Pavarotti, which ALFIO wrote after a memorable dinner they shared together in Sydney and which was sent to Pavarotti shortly before his death. Another of ALFIO’s popular songs is “Passione e Volutta,” a theme he sings about frequently – passion and love.
ALFIO’s performance at The Triad Theatre will include songs performed in English and Italian.
