Dubbed “the next great pop crossover star,” (Tom Alvarez, Indianapolis Star) and “America's new romantic singing sensation," (Broadwayworld), celebrated Italian-American tenor Anthony Nunziata is bringing his “The Joy of Christmas! Tour” to the Arts Garage on Friday, December 22nd for an exclusive Holiday concert.
The powerhouse performer and Carnegie Hall headliner—who has been compared to the stylings of Michael Bublé, Andrea Bocelli and Michael Bolton—will serenade the audience with his soaring tenor voice singing timeless songs from the Italian, Broadway, jazz and Holiday repertoires, including soul-stirring renditions of The Christmas Song, O Holy Night, O Sole Mio, Somewhere, Funniculi, Funnicula, The Gift Is You, I Found A Home, The Greatest Wish as well as original songs from his award-winning “Together for Christmas” Holiday Album (Broadwayworld’s ALBUM OF THE YEAR).
Anthony Nunziata is the Brooklyn-born, Nashville-based singer and songwriter who brings his soulful voice to classic jazz, pop standards, classical-crossover and his timeless original music.
The way Nunziata feels, "I'm in the business of making people feel good, making people happy. I'm grateful I get to tell stories for a living through lyrics and music. To make people laugh, cry, feel something — there's nothing like it."
He has performed over 400 concerts over the past decade headlining major performing arts centers, theaters, symphony concert halls, jazz clubs and private events across the country and around the world. The Brooklyn-born, classically trained singer is hailed by Broadwayworld as “an explosion of love and entertainment.” Anthony recently co-headlined Carnegie Hall for two sold-out concerts with the New York Pops Symphony Orchestra. Anthony recently appeared in the Netflix film "The Last Laugh" opposite Chevy Chase and Richard Dreyfuss.
Anthony's recent original songs include co-write collaborations with Rudy Perez, Blessing Offor, Tigirlily, Victoria Shaw, Jim Brickman, Jackie Evancho, Jeff Franzel, Tom Kimmel, Maria Christensen, Nina Ossoff and Porter Carroll Jr., Kathy Sommer, Jasmine Power, and Dan Godlin.
His songs have recently been featured on MTV, Comedy Central, CBS News, NBC News and Good Day NY. His original pop song "The Gift Is You" – which he wrote honoring his mother's battle with breast cancer (she is now cancer-free) – is currently being used as an anthem for The Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Anthony recently released his debut jazz/pop release "THE LOVE ALBUM," now available on all streaming services and autographed CD's available for purchase at www.anthonynunziata.com. He and his Grammy-winning team of musicians re-imagine “Unchained Melody,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You,” “When I Fall In Love,” “Somewhere,” originals including “Will You Be My Everyday?” and many more.
Anthony's acclaimed debut Christmas album "TOGETHER FOR CHRISTMAS" won Broadwayworld's "BEST HOLIDAY ALBUM OF THE YEAR."
Anthony has brought his fresh take on classic & contemporary songs as well as his movie-bound original tunes across the United States and around the world to performing arts centers, theaters and private events, as well as intimate jazz clubs and symphony concerts with orchestras such as the New York Pops, Detroit Symphony, Cleveland Pops, Colorado Symphony, Lancaster Symphony, Kravis Pops, Annapolis Symphony, Plymouth Symphony, Cape Cod Symphony, Toledo Symphony, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and more. He has performed at private events across the United States and recently in England, Spain, Italy and Singapore.
Anthony studied music, acting and directing at Boston College, and trained in improv comedy at the famed Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City. Featured on Good Morning America and The Rachael Ray Show, Anthony is most proud of his "ARTS MATTER!" Educational Outreach Initiative and Master Class Workshops that educate and inspire students to fearlessly pursue their passions.
