EVA FRANCHI (aka MRS. SERGIO FRANCHI)
This year marks the 21st annual Sergio Franchi Memorial Concert hosted by Eva Franchi on the grounds of her’s and the late tenor’s estate in Stonington, and the 25th anniversary of his untimely passing.
In the 1960s and ’70s, Italian American tenor Sergio Franchi was one of the hardest-working people in show business. With his bright lilting tenor voice, Franchi was featured in countless TV variety specials, headlined in Vegas, starred in the Broadway show “Do I Hear A Waltz?,” and appeared dozens of times on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Connecticut residents remember fondly his appearances at the Oakdale Theater in Wallingford.
Franchi died from brain cancer in 1990. Four years later, Sergio’s widow Eva started the first Sergio Franchi memorial concert on the singer’s estate in Stonington as a way to keep Franchi’s memory alive.
Like every year, this year’s event is expected to attract thousands of Franchi fans for an afternoon of music, including a concert featuring the winners of the Sergio Franchi scholarship competition. Giant screens will broadcast highlights of Franchi’s career.
Before the concert, visitors will get a rare glimpse into the singer’s personal life. “You can walk into our home. Sergio was an avid antique and art collector,” said Eva Franchi. “[You can] see his memorial museum, with [Sergio’s] first baby picture, to the very last picture of his life. You will see his career, his life, and antique cars. Sergio was a great antique car collector.”
