      ITALIAN HOLIDAY CONCERT WITH ROSA TATUATA

      ITALIAN HOLIDAY CONCERT WITH ROSA TATUATA SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22, 4PM SHEPHERDSTOWN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH Love of Sicilian and Southern Italian roots music drives Rosa Tatuata to passionately interpret the traditions and melodies of their ancestors. For this concert, Michela Musolino and the band bring you seasonal favorites of Sicily. These arent the familiar Christmas songs one would expect to hear, simply being sung in Italian. These ancient carols are exclusively Sicilian, and pre-date many common traditions. Yet somehow they convey the universal spirit of the season without the overt references to fireplaces, reindeers, wreaths, and snow!, Musolino quipped. She continued, Our name, Rosa Tatuata, comes from Tennessee Williams beloved play about the happy, raucous collision of immigrant and American cultures in the 1950s. In performance, we relate that incredible, exciting, commingling to the audience through song and dance. We think our bands name is quite apropos! Research into traditional instruments fuels their compelling presentation. Expect to hear the tammburro (Sicilian frame drum), marranzanu (jaw harp), brogna ( conch shell), friscalettu (reed flute) and zampogna (Italian bagpipes) rare sounds indeed! The enchanting mix of ballads and dance tunes will take your imagination to sunbathed Southern Italy and the clear, crystal-blue waters surrounding Sicily. Advance tickets are $20 adults, $18 seniors and $15 members and $10 students. At the door: $25 adults, $22 seniors, $20 members and $10 children/students.
