SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The performance started off with the Star Spangled Banner and then moved into some Italian classics. The Italian Trio took the stage Wednesday night at the Sheraton in downtown Springfield.
For Italians in western Massachusetts, the performance brings them back to their roots. Tony Alvaroni of Longmeadow told 22News, “I came from there and enjoyed keeping up with the culture and for people to learn Italian. It’s exciting! Having other people speaking the same language I knew.”
The performance helps support Italian language programs in Springfield Public Schools.
