“In rare moments in our lives, we are privileged to witness someone with extraordinary, powerfully affecting talent. Teo Ricciardella, The Romantic Tenor is a vocalist so gifted.” rhapsodizes Ella Chabot, managing member of Shot By Ella Photoart, LLC at https://getshotbyella.com/  following a performance of  Teo Ricciardella in Vero Beach, FL.

Sound and music can have a magical impact on brain waves. “Buona fortuna” (Italian) or very good fortune smiled upon a lucky group of diners present for Ricciardella’s show in the Bella Italia ballroom of the Italian American Civic Association of Vero Beach in the beach side town on Florida’s East Coast, Saturday, February 9, 2019.  Known as The Romantic Tenor, the internationally acclaimed vocalist, originally from Ruvo di Puglia, Italy, treated attendees to a rare musical experience that manifested positive inspiration, joy and all the moods in the spectrum of love.
