Fan Quotes

for International Recording Artist, Cristina Fontanelli’s “Christmas in Italy®” Concert!

“After several attempts to attend one of your Christmas in Italy concerts, we finally made it to last night’s event. We were absolutely delighted and decided to make this an annual Christmas tradition. Thank you for a wonderful evening. We felt elated as we left. Con affetto – The Maniglia family”

2012 Christmas in Italy“Thank you sooooooooooo much for affording me the opportunity to see and experience your Christmas in Italy Show. As always you were/are magnificent! Your stage presence is spellbinding. I went home so happy……..Baci, Carolina”

“My partner and I attended your Christmas in Italy performance last night and we both had a magical evening. We loved all the selections you sang, but most of all the interludes in between. It made us feel as if we’ve known you a long time and that we were part of the family. Keep us posted on future engagements. Sincerely, Robert Villanova and Richard Salerni – Two Italian Boys from Brooklyn”

“Just want you to know my wife and I heard you and we cannot put it in words how you affected us. We heard all the great voices from the last century. You put them all to shame. Sincerely, Vince & Sandi Lombardi P. S. We are going to buy every album that you’ve ever recorded.”

Cristina Fontanelli Christmas in Italy 2011

“You blew us away last night! You are a force of nature, Cristina. A real soprano extraordinaire! (I thought who needs Pavarotti and Domingo……we have Fontanelli!) I brought my 96 year old mother (her first outing in a year) and my aunt. We all couldn’t believe your power to communicate. Wonderful! Wonderful! Brava! Paul Vincent

“I am sure Colavita is proud to sponsor Ms. Fontanelli’s concerts, and I thank you for doing so. Cristina Fontanelli’s voice is one of the finest in the opera world today. She sings from her heart, not only to Italians, and Italian-Americans, but to all the people of the world. She is a true Italian-American that creates interest in the musical history of Italy. When one leaves her concert there is a feeling of serenity and joy, that lingers in your heart. From now on when I hear Fontanelli, I will think of Colavita! Sincerely, Edward H. Rackley

Christmas in Italy 2012“To our friends at Colavita - I have enjoyed the talented voice and warm personality of Cristina Fontanelli for many years…..Yesterday’s much anticipated annual “Christmas in Italy” concert attracts many new and former fans of all ages! Towards the end of the show, as Cristina proudly thanked Colavita, I wish you could have heard the applause! As the guests were exiting, we were all grateful to receive a “goodie bag” from you. This just added to the love and joy that her concert produced in each and every heart….I will use only Colavita from here on in! Buon Natale, Lorraine Altamura”

“Complimenti per la dizione, per l’interpretazione, per la passione che la canzone napoletana vuole imperativamente e per la bellissima voce cosi ottimamente e intelligentemente da lei usata. Bravissima! Saluti e in bocca al lupo. Mimi Palmiero”
