Italian Singer Carmen Consoli recently visited fourth graders at the Eliot School in Boston’s North End. The students have been learning about her musical legacy in Mr. M’s music classes as well as in Italian classes with Maestra Grasso and Maestra Pisani.
Consoli answered questions from the students about her career, during which she has released over 13 albums, performed on numerous tours, and received several awards. The Eliot singers also performed for Consoli.
Consoli was the first Italian artist to perform at the Rome Olympic Stadium and the first woman in the history of the Club Tenco Awards to win Tenco Best Album of the Year. She has been named the Goodwill Ambassador for Unicef and Ambassador for Telefono Rosa, a women’s aid helpline.
Italian Consul General Frederica Sereni and Italian Consul Education Officer Adamo Castelnuovo also enjoyed the visit with the Eliot students.
