The Water Island Festival
Each year, Gargiulo will bring eight to ten artists within the classical and improvisational genre of the music world and award-winning performances from the winning vocalist of the "Getting to Carnegie" Competition!
Gargiulo's concerts are always an interactive experience. "He's the only classical musician I know who could truly be regarded as a rock star as well." (The Courier Mail)
"He was in town last night...he's just brilliant...there are not enough words to describe the genius behind him... because when he sits down and plays, you are watching a Beethoven or Chopin ...years from now, your grand-kids and great-grand kids will be talking about Julian. He's just magnificent." (ABC TV)
