Music in Boston’s North End hit a high note on Saturday night as the St. Joseph’s Society brought a star-packed selection of performers to their “Italy American Style” concert at St. Stephen’s Church.

The North End’s own trumpeter, band leader and philanthropist, Albert Natale, 92 years young, was honored with the society’s Musical Achievement Award. In addition, Pastor Fr. Antonio and Fr. Claude from St. Leonard Parish presented an Apostolic Blessing from Pope Francis and read a commendation letter from Cardinal Sean O’Malley. Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, represented by the North End’s Maria Lanza, declared October 3rd as Albert Natale Day in the city.

  1. President, Peter Bagarella, last night’s Italian evening of music at Quincy High School was fabulous, beyond words. My guest and I didn’t want the evening to end. Thank you so much. Lillian A. Pasquale-Pansewicz.
