Sacred Sounds and Italian Spiritual Songs – A Traditional Italian Spiritual Concert featuring award-winning Italian tenor Michéal Castaldo and friends will take place on Sunday, June 10 at 7:00 pm at St. Barnabas Church, located at 33 Woodland Road in Bayville, New Jersey.

This will be Michéal’s first concert at St. Barnabas Church. In between songs, he treats the audience to stories, spoken in English and Italian. He shares moments from his Italian upbringing, tidbits about his musical journey and insight that went into his song choices.

As a special preview, the world-famous singer will be performing numerous songs at the 9:00 am, 10:30 am and noon Masses at St. Barnabas on Sunday, May 27, allowing parishioners to hear his wonderful voice and meet him afterward.

This concert is a fundraiser for St. Barnabas Church. Castaldo will perform classic Italian songs of faith from his chart-topping best-selling CDs, “Aceto,” “Olive You” and “Cinecitta Canta,” accompanied by his string quartet. Due to the generous support of sponsors, the tickets are available for only $25 for general seating.
