12/1: Italian Heritage Concert

Dante FioreDiane
                                Marie Paunetto

BROOKLYN- Dante Fiore, tenor and Diana Marie Paunetto, soprano will be featured in an "Italian Musical Heritage" concert sponsored by the Friends of Historic New Utrecht on Saturday, December 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the New Utrecht Reformed Church Parish House, 18th Avenue and 84th Street in Bensonhurst.

The concert program will consist of classical, opera and traditional songs and arias performed by Mr. Fiore and Ms. Paunetto.

Tenor Dante Fiore's repertoire consists of major roles in Italian and French opera and he has performed widely in more than 30 opera parts. He has performed with the Amici Opera and groups like the Sicilian Tenors and at Italian festivals and events including the Manhattan Columbus Day Parade.

Diana Marie Paunetto is a freshman in the vocal program at Edward R. Murrow High School. She is a soprano soloist for the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens and the youngest member of the Diocesan Choir. In addition to performing locally, this summer she sang the Ave Maria at a celebration of the Feast of Santa Rosalia at the Sanctuary on Monte Pellegrino in Palermo, Sicily.

The 1892 Parish House is part of the landmarked campus of the New Utrecht Reformed Church, home to a congregation organized by Dutch settlers in 1677, which also includes the 1828 Church, now undergoing interior repairs and restoration, and the 1783 New Utrecht Liberty Pole. The Parish House is at 18th Avenue and 84th Street in Bensonhurst, with bus (B8, B1) and subway (D train) lines nearby.

Restoration news
As part of the ongoing restoration of the New Utrecht Church, the vaulted ceiling of the sanctuary was removed and completely replaced. Work on the damaged ceiling began in May 2013. Elaborate scaffolding was erected to allow the workmen access to the flat and barrel-vaulted areas of the ceiling. The new ceiling was completed in August 2015 and the scaffolding was removed. The installation and removal of the scaffolding caused extensive damage to the walls which must be repaired and painted. Additional funds are needed to complete repairs to the organ alcove and sanctuary walls. Donations to help with this work can be sent to:
