Italian Folk and Popular Music: An Evening of Song and Story with Mebanella – Oct. 9

Casa Italiana, the Italian Living/Learning Community, with the assistance of La Maison Française, its French counterpart, will host una serata di musica popolare e moderna— a special evening of Italian folk song and story with the musicians of Mebanella on Oct. 9.
