Artists Series Concerts of Sarasota welcomes back acclaimed singers, songwriters and entertainers Will and Anthony Nunziata, performing “Soundtrack: The Music of Our Lives,” a program created especially for Artist Series Concerts, at 4 p.m. on Dec. 2, at the Sarasota Opera House, 61 N. Pineapple Ave., Sarasota.
The celebrated twin tenors, who will be joined by Eugene Gwozdz, piano, Rick Costa, percussion and Brandon Robertson, bass, will have their vocal virtuosity on full display with fresh takes on classic songs by such icons as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Frankie Valli, Billy Joel, Etta James, Nat King Cole, Adele, and more. Song titles will include “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Unforgettable,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” and many others. The program will also include highlights from beloved Disney soundtracks as well as a handful of festive tunes anticipating the holiday season just ahead.
A post-concert reception with the artists will be held immediately after the performance on the second floor of the Opera House.
Renowned singers, songwriters and comedians Will and Anthony Nunziata are the Brooklyn-born, classically trained singing and comedy duo hailed by The Huffington Post as “a nearly impossible pairing of talent, stage presence and charisma.” The identical twin brothers have performed over 400 concerts over the past five years, headlining major performing arts centers, theaters and symphony concert halls around the world, including two sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops Symphony Orchestra.
Adding to that pace this season is another jam-packed tour schedule, a televised red-carpet performance at New York City’s famed Columbus Day parade, a kick-off concert with Tony award winners Lillias White and Cady Huffman celebrating the release of the twins’ new CD, “Love Always,” and a headline performance with Palm Beach’s Kravis Center Pops conducted by Michael Feinstein. They’ve also recently partnered with the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which will be using the twins’ original song “The Gift Is You” for their 2018-19 campaign videos.
“Only a team as talented, energetic and upbeat as the Nunziata twins could craft this program for us - their creative spin and unique charm onstage highlight the classic songs that are a part of our everyday lives,” said Joseph Holt, artistic director of Artist Series Concerts. “They’re the perfect pair to usher in the holiday season.!”
