CONTINUOUS ENTERTAINMENT

Cannavo-Marino hosts the program Mattinata Musicale, a bilingual program of Italian & Italian American songs Sunday mornings on 1450 WILM AM as well as a show on 610 AM Sports. Cannavo-Marino began broadcasting on Philadelphia’s full-time language network FM sub-carrier station WIBC in 1999. She holds an Italian Triennale degree from the University of Macerata where she studied for several years. The festival is pleased to welcome Melissa as our Master of Ceremonies this year. Melissa

Coro Gabriele D’Annunzio (The Coro) established in 1994, is under the direction of Maestro Federico Piantini and is sponsored by the Associazione Regionale Abruzzese of the Delaware Valley. Dressed in traditional costume, they have performed folk songs, Italian classics, and operatic selections at festivals, parades, colleges, and churches throughout the area for many years.

The Neglia Band is from Clifton, NJ. The group has performed at various feast day celebrations in the Delaware Valley area

including Hammonton NJ, Wilmington, DE, and Philadelphia, as well as in the North Jersey and New York area. The band was founded by Tony Neglia and is now under the direction of Rich DeZao.

The Pennsport String Band has embraced a model of string band that is revolutionary. They are not a yearround string band. They are a three month a year organization (October through New Years) with a sole focus on their New Year’s Day performance. The sting band has graciously agreed to perform at the festival this year, so be sure to wear your “Mummer’s Strut” shoes!

MUSICAL HEADLINERS

Tre Bella is a three part harmony girl group with a flair towards Italian and Italian American pop music. Their vocal harmonies are incomparable. The girls have headlined at performing art centers and concert halls across the county. JoAnn Robertozzi is the “architect” of Tre Bella and the creative force behind Ti Piace, Italian American Presentations, Inc. which dedicates itself to promoting Italian heritage through art and culture. Multi-platinum hit songwriter Lorraine Ferro has a voice that has been compared to legendary performers such as Edith Piaf and Janis Joplin. Rosie De Sanctis is a native of Delaware County and remembers her first role of the Blessed Mother in her 8th grade Christmas production.

Vito Lombardo, singer/entrepreneur, is new to the Philadelphia area having appeared for the first time at the 2015 Italian Music Festival at Widener University. His performance was very well received leading to his invitation to this year’s Italian American Festival. Born and raised in Brooklyn of Sicilian parents, Vito has performed for years in and around New York City with NY based party bands. Recently, he has performed more as a solo artist for corporate affairs, weddings and fund raisers. Ciao Delco is pleased to again welcome this remarkable entertainer to share his selection of Italian and Italian American favorites.

CIAO DELCO CHARITIES

CIAO Delco was established in 2013 with the specific purpose of producing and establishing the Italian American Heritage Festival as a major annual event in Delaware County. Through its member organizations, CIAO Delco donates to a variety of charities. The primary focus of our contributions is the promotion and continuation of Italian culture and of the unique Italian American heritage in the Delaware valley. Contributions are also made to organizations with a focus on children, education,

individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities and health issues.

For a complete list of charities by organization, please visit our web site: ciaodelco.org.

Don Guanella Group Home Program The Don Guanella Developmental Programs division

provides residential services for men over the age of 21 with a primary diagnosis of Intellectual Disabilities. Don Guanella Village is committed to the belief that each individual has the right to strive to fulfill his potential in the physical, mental, emotional, social, psychological, and spiritual areas of his life. Each individual is unique and therefore entitled to strive for such fulfillment in an environment that will most fully contribute to his growth and development.

Working to end Cancer... The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation is dedicated to serving people afflicted with various forms of thalassemia, most notably the major form of this genetic blood disease, Cooley’s anemia/thalassemia major. The mission of the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation is to increase life expectancy and enhance the quality of life for those impacted by thalassemia, a class of genetic blood disorders, most of which require regular blood transfusions and aggressive management of chronic iron overload, the predominant cause of early death. We do so by funding medical research to advance treatment and curative approaches, by supporting and advising patients and their families and advocating on their behalf, and by educating medical professionals and the general public.

The Knights of Columbus

founding principles are charity, unity and fraternity. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities. The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council since its inception in 1880 to more than 15,100 councils and 1.9 million members today.

Top minds in cancer research suggest that ending cancer is entirely possible. It is reasonable to expect that we can “cure cancer,” which is now the number-two cause of death in this country. In some cases, we already have. Cancer is the general name for more than 100 diseases, and we are currently able to cure a number of them. Breast cancer, most skin cancers, testicular cancer, Hodgkin lymphoma, and thyroid cancer are a few of the cancers with a high cure rate, and research in several key areas is increasing the odds of curing – and preventing – more types.

Italian Studies & Student Exchange Programs Through the Italian Studies Program at Widener University, CIAO Delco contributes funds to scholarships for local students who are of Italian heritage and who excel in Italian studies as well as student exchange programs with Italian universities. Support is also provided for Italian Cinema Night at Widener University. The screenings are sponsored by the Italian Club, Il Circolo Italiano, whose goal is to bring culture to campus through Italian cinema. Films are shown in Alumni Auditorium on the last Wednesday of each month. Discussion groups follow the screenings. CIAO Delco contributes to Italian language studies programs at Neumann University as well.
