Melodie Italiane is an Italian Folklore choir made up of 15 singers, 2 musicians and a musical director. The members of Melodie Italiane have over twenty years of musical experience working with choirs and continue to share our passion for both Italian folklore music and singing. The songs we perform recognize the various regions of Italy. Though the focus of the choir is celebrating the tradition of the Italian song, we also celebrate masses throughout the year for special Saint days, funerals, and other occasions. Some performances the choir members have done in the past include: various festa’s, mass services, Mississauga Italian Fest, Singing Together, Peach Festival of Niagara-on-the-Lake, CHIN T.V., dinner dances, and much more. Our musicians include an accordionist (keyboard) and guitarist. It also encompasses 3 soloists that perform their interpretations of various classic folklore songs.
Our choir is directed by Mary Lou Faraldo who has been a music educator and choir director for over twenty years. Her intent for the choir is to continue to keep alive the culture and tradition of the Italian song in our home of Canada.
