They have brought their exhilarating and unique shows to numerous venues throughout North America and beyond. The trio has garnered rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Their recent credits include a performance on Fox 5’s Good Day New York with Rosanna Scotto and Dave Price, as well as a sold-out Carnegie Hall début and a standing-room-only engagement at Lincoln Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium with their show From Pavarotti to Pop, commissioned by Lincoln Center. In addition, O Sole Trio’s recent performance at the Redlands Bowl in CA drew an audience of over 6,000 people.
O Sole Trio has also taken their show overseas to international audiences at two famous venues in the UK, Dame Cleo Laine’s Music in the Garden Festival in Wavendon and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London.
