Music to help families afford Catholic school

On Saturday, Dec. 3, all are invited to “Christmas Amore,” an evening concert with the Sicilian Tenors in support of the South Jersey Scholarship Fund for Catholic schools. This fund helps keep tuition affordable for many families seeking a Catholic education.

The Camden Diocesan Christmas concert has grown in popularity every year and is a hallmark event for schools and the South Jersey community.

This year’s performers, the Sicilian Tenors, have given concerts in the United States from coast to coast, from New York City’s Carnegie Hall to the Sicilian Festival in San Diego.

The three are Aaron Caruso, who can sing in seven languages, studied opera in Italy and New York, and specializes in classic Neapolitan music; Elio Scaccio, who studied at the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins and sings classical, pop standards, Italian ethnic music and occasionally vintage rock; and Sam Vitale, an experienced theater performer and graduate of the University of Michigan, School of Music. Vitale is also an Air Force veteran of both Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, who took first place in the World Wide Tops in Blue Competition, Classical Division.

In addition to the renowned Sicilian Tenors, this year’s concert will feature performances by a combined choir of diocesan high school musicians.

Christmas Amore will be held at the Investors Bank Performing Arts Center in Sewell, at 7:30 p.m.
