Songs from the Heart
Westfield on Weekends (WOW) has announced the lineup for “WOW! … It’s Cabaret!” a new musical series featuring professional cabaret artists from New York City, Boston and Western Massachusetts to be held during the coming months in the Great Room of the Westfield Senior Center, 45 Noble Street in Westfield.
Songs from the Heart, the second show in the series on Friday, April 28th will feature Linda Mironti, who has made three appearances in Westfield, including a successful fundraiser to build the Amelia Park Children’s Museum and two other appearances at Piccolo’s. According to Ms. Mironti, the show includes songs that “burrow deep into the heart and if they are not sung, the heart will burst.”
Ms. Mironti spent ten years performing on Italian television and on musical stages from Milan to Sicily, singing blues, jazz, rhythm and blues, and original pop material she wrote for herself and other artists. She recorded and co-wrote the soundtrack for an Italian major motion picture, “18 in a Week” and recorded two albums still sold throughout Europe. Linda has been performing her one-woman shows all across the United States to much acclaim.
For the more than three decades, Mironti’s arranger and accompaniest, Bobby Peaco has graced the club and cabaret circuit of New York City with nine MAC awards and six Backstage Bistro Awards to his credit. As composer, writer and featured performer, he has appeared in two critically acclaimed cabaret pieces, Erik and the Snow Maidens and Indigo Rat. This will be his fourteenth summer entertaining at Montparnasse Piano Bar in Mykonos, Greece.
