Songs from the Heart, starring international musical artists Linda Mironti and Bobby Peaco on Friday, April 28 at 8 pm in the Great Room of the Westfield Senior Center, 45 Noble Street in Westfield Ms Mironti has made three appearances in Westfield, including a successful fundraiser to build the Amelia Park Children’s Museum and two other appearances at the cabaret series at the former Piccolo’s restaurant in years past. According to Ms.Mironti, her current show includes songs that “burrow deep into the heart and if they are not sung, the heart will burst.”
“With Bobby Peaco’s sparkling arrangements I hope that the songs will reach out and grab your heart or funny bone and anywhere in between,” she said.
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. She has been performing her one-woman shows all across the United States to much acclaim.
For more than three decades, Ms. Mironti’s long-time 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.
