This video clip is a workshop of Labor of Love, a play with music. The format: presenters are prepared for the professional stage while the writers of this piece work on developing characters, monologues, dialogue and music. Scripts, pre-recorded music, lyric sheets are given to presenters in advance. The video is a clip of our workshop format. Professional actors, songwriters, writers and vocalists direct presenters.
We are performing artists who take their work seriously presenting excellent programs to under-served communities around New York State. Public libraries, community centers, Italian Festivals and nursing facilities for the sick and elderly are venues where we present our programs and promote Italian culture through music and art. Italian American Popular Music Concerts and Labor of Love are current projects. We offer workshops free to the public for emerging artists.
Everyone loves music; it brings people together, helps them remember a time when they were young or a special moment in their lives. When they clap their hands and tap their feet, when they smile, we know we are doing the most blessed job of making audiences happy!
Pre Show at the Floral Park Pubic Library where Ms. Robertozzi, Artistic Director of Ti Piace, Inc. explains how a NYSCA grant has helped achieve broad outreach to under served communities around NY State.
"Labor of Love" is a play with music about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911. Told through the eyes of Italian Americans, it began as a one act play and has now blossomed into a staged reading performance with music. We hope to get it on its feet into a full production. We have performed this piece all over the State of NY in public libraries, museums and performing art centers! "The Triangle Workers Live On!"
One of our songs from "Labor of Love" made it on NBC News! It was the Centennial Memorial for the victims and we represented Ti Piace, Inc. Watch the video! It was an incredible day!
We love bringing under served communities: libraries, nursing homes, music festivals and community centers throughout the State of New York some Italian culture, music and art. We need your support to continue our mission! Thanks and call us anytime to ask about our next event near you!
