Mary Mancini

Mary Mancini is considered to be among the “Elite” of the International Music Circuit.

Internationally acclaimed vocal artist Mary Mancini has been featured in the New York Times, the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, and the NY Journal News and has performed in a variety of venues around the world.

Able to sing in eight different languages, Mary draws from a deep repertory reservoir.  She is adept at pop, show tunes, operatic arias, and sacred music and has received worldwide acclaim.  Le Republicain Lorrain, in Alsace-Lorraine, France, writes that the “purity of her voice, the ease with which she interpreted the most difficult pieces showed that she is a great artist.”  The Spring City Evening News in Kunming, China, writes that “audiences were greatly impressed by Mary Mancini’s singing ability…Through her music, we see her heart is smiling.”

Mary has headlined numerous concert halls and festivals in North America, Europe, and China. She has performed at the Garden State Arts Center, Resorts International Casino Hotel, Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, and Mohegan Sun Resort Casino in CT. Mary has had star billing at Italian Festivals across the country including New York, Milwaukee, Maryland, Delaware, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Mary has completed two concert tours of China. As a guest of the China Ministry of Culture, she toured five cities in three weeks and performed with three symphony orchestras.  Joining her on tour was highly acclaimed Chinese tenor, Douglas Song.  In addition to performing with the symphony orchestras, some of the most memorable moments included a performance held at the 1600 seat True Color Jazz Supper Club in the booming city of Shenzhen and in the 3500 seat Golden Opera House.

In addition to her busy concert schedule, which keeps her on the road for over 200 days a year, Mary also maintains an active recording career.   Her vocal versatility is evident in the six CDs she has recorded.

The Red Cross selected Mary’s original composition, “With Open Arms,” to accompany its video tribute to the September 11 victims.  On her CD of Italian Love Songs & Arias, “Canzoni dal Cuore”, Mary sings with passion many of the classic songs from the Italian repertoire.  The album also includes her own composition, “Preghiera, Ninna-Nanna” set to the music of Pietro Mascagni. Her International Album, It’s a Wonderful World, shows Mary’s extraordinary vocal expertise and passion in the wide variety of music she sings, from Broadway, Ethnic, Pop and her own Gospel composition, Happiness is the Lord.    Her most recent CD, “Ricordi”, also features her accordionist husband Mario Tacca, as they sing and play favorite Italian selections. 

Mary’s many awards and accolades (listed below) include Honorable Mention from the American Song Festival for her composition and recording of “Happiness is the Lord”.  She has also been presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Order of the Sons of Italy in America for her ongoing outstanding musical contribution to the arts.
