Michael Amante


Michael Amante is being hailed as "the tenor of the new millennium." Tony Bennett has dubbed him "the new Mario Lanza" and Regis Philbin calls him "the fourth tenor." He has made command appearances before Pope John Paul II, Luciano Pavarotti, and countless celebrities from Sophia Loren, Tony LoBianco, and Anthony Quinn to Kevin Kostner, Denzyl Washington, and Julia Roberts. The New York Times writes, "the swashbuckling Italian tenor exhibits both the voice and charisma of a crossover star." Others, including the New York Post, have written, "Amante plays his part to near perfection," "movie-star good looks," "earth-shattering powerful voice," and "a voice worthy of La Scala."

He is the singer of choice for many dignitaries including the President of the United States, Governor George Pataki, former U.S. Senator Alfonse D'Amato, and Italian Consul General, Georgio Radicati. He has performed on national television programs including "Live, with Regis and Kathy Lee," the film, "While My Pretty One Sleeps," NBC's coverage of the "Columbus Day Parade," Italian RAI Television, and PBS's broadcast of "Italian Passion for Life" and "The Metro Show." He has recently performed the national anthem for the New York Mets first division game and the first home game of the National League Championship Series at Shea Stadium. Mr. Amante has just completed his debut recording of original and classical music working with legendary producers Phil Ramone and Charles Koppelman, engineered by Grammy winner Frank Filipetti and performed by members of The Canadian Opera Company Orchestra. He continues to organize orchestras for engagements in New York City, Chicago, Atlantic City, and across the country.
