p308297242-3We are so excited to announce a new addition to our Music Lesson Instructors! JOHN MARIO is a name you won’t soon forget! Inland Valley Symphony has just announced that John Mario will be stepping up to the podium as it’s NEW MUSIC DIRECTOR and CONDUCTOR for the 2014-2015 season! We are so excited for him! He has also teamed up with The Master Musician to give Piano Lessons! We feel so honored! Here are many reviews of his amazing performances!

REVIEWS FROM THE JACKIE EVANCHO TOUR:
“I think it’s fair to say that many Jackie concert-goers would just rather not hear the orchestral numbers at all. However, the Marin Symphony, conducted by John Mario di Costanzo, was a powerhouse. I didn’t hear a single weak instrument or awkward passage. The concert began with Mascagni’s much-loved Intermezzo to Cavalleria Rusticana; an especially strong interpretation of this piece of music.” —Magique fan review

“The Marin Orchestra then presented an astounding interpretation of The Pirates of the Caribbean. The dynamics were flawless, the sheer presence of the orchestra irresistible. It isn’t even a particular favorite music to me, but I was still transfixed by the magic John Mario was directing.” —Magique fan review

“John Mario began Queen’s famous Bohemian Rhapsody with a startling command of his piano. There were no dropped notes, no missed phrases, no odd tempos. The dynamics were just phenomenal all through the concert, but with this piece, John Mario as pianist shined bright, that light helping to illume the entire orchestra in a kind of controlled frenzy. Again, I feel that people who came to see only Jackie found it hard to ignore such a high level of pianism, orchestral power and majesty. Afterwards, entering the stage again, Jackie with big eyes exclaimed, “That was awesome!” —Magique fan review

421977_608684002476187_122396365_nREVIEWS FROM TRI-CITIES OPERA TENURE:
“Tri-Cities Opera concludes its season this weekend with a lush and haunting interpretation of Jacques Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann. … another excellent production with a fine cast and a stunning orchestra led by John Mario Di Costanzo.” — Tony Vilecco, Broome Arts Mirror

“Under John Mario Di Costanzo, the already-fine TCO orchestra never has sounded better. The playing was much tighter, cleaner and brighter than in some of the past productions I have seen. Di Costanzo’s attention to detail in every aspect of the score brought a crisper realization of Mozart’s brilliant writing for instruments and his understanding of the human voice. After a marvelous reading of the opera’s overture (the theme of which is repeated near the end of the opera), Di Costanzo, TCO’s new music and associate artistic director, was consistent throughout in guiding the musicians to realize a nearly perfect ensemble.” — Tony Vilecco, Broome Arts Mirror

“Attending Tri-Cities Opera’s final dress rehearsal Wednesday (Feb. 9) for Giuseppe Verdi’s perennial favorite, La Traviata, I did not believe this production could surpass the excellence of last fall’s Cosi Fan Tutte. I was wrong. What maestro John Mario Di Costanzo has done is to, literally, transform the opera’s orchestra to such a high level of playing that it’s hard to imagine these already fine musicians could sound even better. — Tony Vilecco, Broome Arts Mirror

“Di Costanzo has an innate ability to draw out the finer nuances of Verdi’s rich score, from the haunting prelude (played beautifully by the strings and brass) to his attention to detail with every soloist and choral moment. He “breathes” with his singers, giving them room for ample interpretive moments and deep artistic liberty with Verdi’s riveting music.” — Tony Vilecco, Broome Arts Mirror

“THE ORCHESTRA, CONDUCTED BY JOHN MARIO DI COSTANZO, PERFORMED AS A FINELY HONED INSTRUMENT, NEVER OBTRUSIVE, NEVER OVERSHADOWING THE SINGERS THE CELLOS AND VIOLINS SANG WITH THE SAME POIGNANCY AND PATHOS AS THE PERFORMERS ON STAGE.” — Lee Shepard, Broome Arts Mirror

“Tri-Cities Opera’s production of Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) and was not disappointed. All of the principals were strong with a few standouts. No surprise here that the orchestra also was excellent under the firm hand of Maestro John Mario Di Costanzo. The overture, a signature piece, was worth the price of admission.” — Tony Vilecco, Broome Arts Mirror

“As usual, maestro John Mario Di Costanzo has drilled his musicians well, and the orchestra played Puccini’s score with aplomb. His attention to detail was quite amazing especially when he asked the musicians’ to isolate each note in one section and really stress their importance. Because Puccini’s score relies on long lines, painfully haunting musical themes and often strong and isolated chords, it is imperative to play as an ensemble, and Di Costanzo is master of this.” — Tony Vilecco, Broome Arts Mirror

“Playing a grueling, non-stop score, the orchestra under Maestro John Mario Di Costanzo is to be highly commended for its rock-solid foundation for the opera.” — Lee Shepard, Broome Arts Mirror

p503911792-3REVIEWS FROM SARASOTA OPERA:
“Even before the curtain rose, the intense opening notes in the orchestra at the Sarasota Opera’s Lucia di Lammermoor crackled with energy. Conductor John Di Costanzo quickly established that his approach to this music was going to be forceful; tempos were rapid, climaxes loud. His excellent ensemble responded with brilliant clarity and detail.” — The St. Petersburg Times

“John Di Costanzo’s musical direction was every bit as suave as his matinée idol looks.” — Opera Now

“With a colorful production in Sarasota’s traditional style, young conductor John Mario di Costanzo led the orchestra with a fizzing vitality and an impressive sense of Donizetti’s comedy style.” — South Florida Review

Christmas Stocking Stuffers

Thank you for reading this! I know that you have been bombarded with advertisements from pretty much everywhere of everyone trying to get you to spend your hard earned money on their stuff. How do I know this?? Because it is happening to me! All the email listings and blog subscriptions that I signed up for because for whatever reason I like their company…until now…never stop soliciting me to BUY BUY BUY!! Ok, I won’t be so extreme to say that I don’t like them anymore, they are just annoying and are kinda killing the Christmas spirit for me.  I am not kidding you, I get emails from the same people every single day about their latest specials. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good deal, but “give me a break”! One email, once a week, at the most will do, right??

Now that you know I can sympathize with you, I will present this blog about some great Christmas Stocking Stuffers that we have at The Master Musician. But only 1 blog post. There’s a chance you could get an actual email too, but only 1, not a bazillion! =)
