“We’re just celebrating the musical heritage of the city of Philadelphia; in particular, the Italian heritage,” Krajewski explains.

The concert will feature a wide variety of music and styles from many different Italian singers.

“We’re going to pay tribute to Philadelphia’s own Mario Lanza,” Krajewski says. “We’re also going to be paying tribute to some great Italian-American singers like Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett.”
