LISTEN and SEE! the Irrera Brothers performance in Cartago, Costa Rica

The Critically acclaimed Irrera Brothers have captivated audiences throughout the United States and abroad. The New York Concert Review cited their 2013 concert in Carnegie Hall as a “riveting and dynamic performance”. Additional concert engagements have brought Joseph and John to notable venues such as the Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, the Eastman Theatre and internationally throughout France, Germany, Italy, Bulgaria and Latin America. With a range of educational venues, the brothers both received their doctorates in Musical Arts from the Eastman School of Music in 2014. Besides performing together and as soloists, the Irrera Brothers have served on the faculty at the Eastman School of Music and the Eastman Community Music School. 

Ms. Marcello received her Master of Vocal Pedagogy and Performance from Westminster Choir College. A frequent area soloist, Ms. Marcella “won the audience over” as Sister Blanche of the Agony of Christ in Opera Sacra’s recent production of the Dialogues of the Carmelites. She has also been a featured soloist under the baton of Robert Franz and Marvin Hamlisch with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Her musical talents have also led her to Off-Broadway musical theater in such productions as State Fair, the King and I and Fiddler on the Roof.

Another notable feature of this concert will be the Steinway piano co-sponsored by Denton Cottier and Daniels. Joseph Irrera is one of 500 Steinway musicians world-wide. The quality of the music at this event will be unparalleled, and will be a wonderful way to launch the holiday season.
