Cristina Fontanelli has become a well-known personality through her recordings, her appearances on TV, radio, in concert, nightclubs, and opera, and through her acting debut on network television.
She has appeared as PBS-TV/NY affiliates host for Andrea Bocelli’s “Live From Central Park” also starring Celine Dion and Tony Bennett; for the “Il Volo Takes Flight” special; Vienna Boys Choir and Qi Gong PBS-TV Specials. She is the “voice of Domino’s Pizza” on their national radio commercial, the voice of “Nonna” on PBS-TV Chef Lidia Bastianich’s Christmas special (in over 300 PBS outlets across the U.S.) and has appeared on CBS Weekend NY in interview/ performance/co- hosting roles for the past 2 years. Cristina’s beautiful soprano voice has taken her to the White House as part of President Clinton’s holiday celebration and to open the ceremonies at the Stars and Stripes Inaugural Ball for President George W. Bush. This followed her “Lifetime Achievement Award
in the Arts” from the Order Sons of Italy in America (previous honorees include Luciano Pavarotti).
Cristina’s 13th Annual “Christmas in Italy” concert took place in New York City in December 2016. She has received rave reviews for her nightclub entertainment abilities, in addition to her classical concert and operatic appearances. Other appearances include the Hilton in Atlantic City, St. Patrick’s Cathedral NYC, a 9/11 memorial concert at Rockefeller Center with the NYPD Concert Band (televised on CNN, Fox National and NY Channels 5, 7 and 9) and the Columbus Day Parade on 5th Avenue NYC. She was signed by a platinum- record winning producer to record “Cristina Fontanelli Sings Great Italian Favorites”.
She completed three world-tours with the Mantovani Orchestra, in which tours Pamela Glasser played horn in the orchestra. Pamela was instrumental in ARTCORE’s bringing Cristina to Wyoming and will collaborate for this concert, as she did three years ago.
