Actor, singer and storyteller Lou Del Bianco has been performing for all ages since 1982. According to the New York Times, Lou's dramatic approach to storytelling "puts pow into passivity!" The Parents Choice foundation states that "few performers excel as both storyteller and musician, but Lou Del Bianco is one who does." Lou's 6 recordings have garnered high praise from Billboard Magazine, Parent's Choice, NAPPA, BOOKLIST, CHILD Magazine, Family Fun and a slew of others!
Lou has performed all over the country, from the Tastes of Chicago to the Kravis Center to Carnegie Hall to the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. His music video, "A Little Bit Clumsy", has played on the Learning Channel. He has traveled the Northeast as an artist in residence for 20 years; performed in San Diego at the International Reading Association's annual convention; served as keynote speaker on arts / character education from North Carolina to Massachusetts.
On an educational level, Lou has been an artist-in-residence since 1987 and has worked in many schools alongside teachers to help improve literacy in the classroom. His Kinderart residency (created with his wife, Camille) was honored by New York State as a model program, and his Story Theater residency, Around the World and Make a Good Choice! one man shows have reached thousands of elementary children all over the tri-state area. In 2009, Lou’s Abraham Lincoln program was endorsed by the Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
Lou’s newest and most exciting venture is a one man about his grandfather, Luigi, who was the chief carver on Mount Rushmore. In 2011, Lou had the distinct privilege of performing “In the Shadow of the Mountain” at Mount Rushmore to enthusiastic crowds. Since then, over 40,000 school children have learned about Luigi Del Bianco and his great contribution to our nation’s greatest memorial sculpture.
