Entertainer

 

"...this singer brings a uniqueness in all aspects of his performance..."
-David Mercaldo PhD , Skyline Theater Productions



Entertainer Vincent Ricciardi is known for his rich, powerful vocals, and his vocal versatility. As a concert artist he has thrilled audiences throughout the Northeast in the clubs of NY and the theaters of NJ and PA, showcasing Opera, Neapolitan music, Jazz, Broadway and Opera/Pop crossover favorites.  With a large repertoire encompassing a variety of styles, Vincent has several shows that can be adapted for any venue or audience. Current shows include:  Vincent Ricciardi Sings Mario Lanza…and Caruso too!  a celebration of the great tenors of the 20th century and today; Songs from Me to You!, an opera/pop crossover show in the vein of Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban and Russell Watson; On Broadway, featuring some of Broadway's favorite songs; and A Celebration of Neapolitan Song.
 
As a songwriter, Vincent's music mixes pop/rock rhythms with powerful operatic/pop vocals. His music is often compared to the music of Josh Groban, Russell Watson, and Michael Buble.  His song "Sometimes you Gotta Get Away" is featured in the upcoming film At the Sinatra Club.

Vincent can also be heard on numerous sound recordings from new musicals and songs by vibrant new songwriters. His credits include work with producer/composer/orchestrator Jack Walker (John Edward Cross Country), producer/composer Andrea Ardito, songwriter/composer Annie Pasqua, and Singer/songwriter Jon Montgomery.  Recently he worked with composer Marco Sabiu (best known for his collaborations with Kylie Minogue, Take That, Pavarotti, Morricone) and can be heard on the concept album Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross starring Christpher Lee.  He will also be heard on the upcoming Charlemagne: The Omens of Death.

"Most of the supporting voices are well-chosen and well performed, but the best of these must surely be Vincent Ricciardi, whose strong, emotive tenor voice is well-cast in the role of young Charlemagne."

Emily & Vincent Ricciardi Live in Concert!

Grand Opera, Musical Theater, the American Song Book – they sing it all! Married, singing duo – Vincent & Emily Ricciardi have performed together throughout the tri-state area. Their love of Puccini, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Mozart, & Gershwin is shared with their audiences in each show. This husband and wife team met in 2008 when they fell in love during a production of The Pirates of Penzance. In 2013, they tied the knot and continue to make beautiful music together.

Vincent & Emily's performances highlight some of the most famous artists’ repertoires of the 20th Century – Mario Lanza, Julie Andrews, Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion... and many more! Their performance together on stage always touches audiences and warms the heart. Nino Pantano of the Italian Voice stated that Vincent & Emily are “two of the most promising and talented performers today. Vincent Ricciardi’s lyric tenor is blessed with a smooth and easy top and gives the listener much to savor. Emily Wright-Ricciardi's secure and saucy soprano was a model of elegance."

Emily has performed throughout the tri-state area as well as internationally at the Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in Harrogate, England. Emily also performs regularly with the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players in New York City.
