5th Annual La Primavera Vinni
Legend says that in Sicily when Persephone returns to her mother, Ceres, she brings the warmth and joy of springtime. Just when Proserpina returns to her mother, Cerere, and ushers in Spring, somewhere in NYC an impromptu piazza pops up and people celebrate with dance while Rosa Tatuata plays the folk and roots music of Sicily! This is the 5th year we are celebrating together and it's happening on Tuesday, March 26th at 8pm (Doors open at 7:30pm) at the Goddard Riverside's Bernie Wohl Center. Rosa Tatuata - Michela Musolino, Phil Passantino, Charlie Rutan and Jeff Panettieri - will be playing folk music from Sicily - and a few surprises from Southern Italy - come for the love songs, tarantelle, balletti, polkas... and maybe even a tammurriata...We'll even teach you a few steps to get the party started! Bring your friends or come to meet new ones!
