The Dix Hills Performing Arts Center is pleased to present singer Giada Valenti and her Orchestra, Saturday, March 23, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $25 to $45 for this very popular show. The celebrated Italian songstress and entertainer will sing popular Italian songs as well as best-loved romantic songs from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s.
Her most recent CD release is called And I Love You So and features the songs of some of Giada’s favorite songwriters. These hits include: “It’s Impossible”, “Lo Che Non Vivo Senza Te” (the original Italian version of “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me”) and “Grande Grande Grande.”
Recognized for her voice and stage presence, Giada continually appears to sellout audiences at Atlantic City and is a regular performer at Feinstein’s at the Regency, New York City’s premier cabaret room. In December 2005, Giada’s self-released CD Italian Signorina was launched in the United States to great reviews.
Giada has performed on the red carpet at New York’s Columbus Day Parade since 2005. Over the past seven years, Giada also performed her own original shows La Dolce Vita Swings and Moonlight & Romance, in sold out-theatres in New York. During these shows, she takes her audience on a “journey across the Atlantic”, performing Italian and American love songs. Giada also performed at the Sergio Franchi Memorial Concert.
In June 2007, Giada made her debut at the premiere cabaret room in the U.S.: Feinstein’s at the Regency in New York City.
In 2009, Giada introduced her new show Tribute to Love in the United States. With her great storytelling and emotional vocal skills Giada takes her audience on a trip through the most romantic places in Italy, performing love songs from the Italian and American songbook. Her selections are a blend of the past and the present and many feature new arrangements, with an adult contemporary pop sound, enhanced with elements of jazz and rock.
Producer Sonny Grosso and Director Phil Ramone, a legendary record producer, selected Giada for a role in the Broadway Musical Be My Love based on the life story of tenor extraordinaire Mario Lanza.
An active supporter of Italian causes and organizations, she was named woman of the year by the Organization of Italian Charities in America, and was honored by the Order of the Sons of Italy of America for being an outstanding role model to young Italian-Americans.
