Campus Preview: Benefit recital for De Anza music student scholarships

Italian musicians soprano Antonella Romanazzi and pianist Marco Cadario will join American violinist Joseph Gold in a fundraising recital on Friday Oct. 25 at De Anza College.

The recital will be held at the Visual and Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m.

“This year will be even more successful than the others, as we now have an extra dimension of voice and piano in addition to the violin,” said John Swensson, English faculty and co-founder of the benefit for De Anza music students scholarships.

“Students should expect a beautiful concert of classical music, with a bit of interaction at the end,” Swensson said. Musicians will communicate with students in a discussion forum after the recital.

Last year’s concert raised about $4,000.

The event will feature pieces by Verdi, Paganini and songs written by Gold himself that will premiere at the benefit.

Romanazzi, performing opera at the recital, formerly studied at the Conservatory of Italian Switzerland and under conductors such as Luciana Serra and Giovanna Canetti.

Romanazzi has performed around the world at venues in Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.

Marco Cadario studied at the Milan Conservatory and Oberlin College Conservatory of Music in Ohio. Cadario worked in Norway, France, Switzerland and Germany.

The Los Angeles Times compared Cadario’s sound to Beethoven, performed with a spirit of Mediterranean temperament.

The concert is free for students. All other visitors are asked to donate $20 to support music student scholarships.
