AN EVENING WITH EMERALDE
Margie Russomanno, Mark Gasbarro & Band
The songwriting team that goes by the name ‘Emeralde’ is Mark Gasbarro (piano,keyboards), Margie Russomanno (vocals). Whether appearing as a duo, or with their 7-piece band, or with a full symphony orchestra, their musical dexterity shines throughout their live performances.
Mark, composer/arranger, is one of the most sought after pianists in the entertainment industry. His piano playing and orchestrations have been featured on a long list of Hollywood blockbusters including the beautifully touching featured piano solo in Pixar's hit film UP which won the Academy Award® for Best Score, ZOOTOPIA, STAR TREK BEYOND as well as 2015 summer blockbusters INSIDE OUT, Jurassic World, and Tomorrowland and STAR WARS 2017. Margie, a radiant pop singer and brilliant songwriter, delivers the duos' vocals with a voice as lush as velvet. Margie has written music for television and feature films and her works have garnered over half a million YouTube views. Her most recent solo CD release, All I Need, spent three years in the top 5 on ReverbNation’s LA Christian Gospel Charts, much of that time in the #1 position.
