A lecture-recital will be held by Nicola Scaldaferri at the Hofstra Cultural Center (Hofstra University, Long Island, NY) as part of the Italian-American Experience Lecture Series.
The lecture discusses the musical and cultural activity of Italian migrants in New York and on Long Island before and after World War II, and examines the case study of Joe Chiaffitella (1900-1980).
Nicola Scaldaferri will also perform traditional music on the zampogna (bagpipe), accompanied by Massimo Cusato (tamburello).
The event will take place at the Helene Fortunoff Theater at 7 p.m.
