Commissione Giovani NY to Host First-Ever “Young Italian Music Festival” and After-Party at Hudson Terrace on Wednesday, October 28


For those of you whose familiarity with Italian music includes a few bars from the Godfather theme and a snippet of that aria from the Olive Garden commercial, you don’t know what you’ve been missing.

There’s a whole new generation of talented Italian musicians out there who bring their famous passion and gusto for life to their music – and the results are truly fantastico

            Lucky for you, CGNY, a group of young Italians and Italian Americans in New York, is presenting the first-ever Young Italian Music Festival on October 28th at the hip Manhattan venue, Hudson Terrace. From Daniele Stefani of Milan, a classically trained guitarist turned singer-songwriter and pop star in Italy (Festival di Sanremo 2003 – “Chiaraluna”), to the celebrated artists Max De Angelis of Rome (Sanremo 2005 – “Sono qui per questo”) and Daniele Battaglia of Bologna (Sanremo 2008 – “Voce nel Vento”), to local Italian-American artists such as Gaetano Fava infusing Italian pop classics with their own unique voices, the line-up is sure to wow – and to change your notions about the genre of Italian music for good.
            Updated info about the artists will be available on the CGNY website at Following the performance, concert-goers are invited to mingle with the musicians and other guests at the after-party at the rooftop bar at Hudson Terrace. This is an evening you won’t want to miss. To purchase tickets in advance, visit
