Michael Amante may go by many different titles, the “People’s Tenor,” the “Prince of High C’s,” the “Voice of the Mets” but one thing that everyone can agree on is the overwhelming power of his voice. Prepare to be astounded by classical vocalist, Michael Amante and his 9-piece orchestra, performing pieces from Puccini’s Tosca and Bernstein’s West Side Story. Praised by the likes of Pavarotti and Tony Bennett, Amante has been lauded as “one of the greatest voices ever heard.”
Michael got his start in New York at the young age of 6, playing Oliver in a production at his Catholic school. He grew up making a local name for himself doing Foreigner impersonations in biker bars on the New York State Thorough-way. Michael’s love of opera blossomed when a choir director in upstate New York introduced him to legendary Swedish tenor Jussi Björling. Along the way, Michael attracted the attention of opera-legend Luciano Pavarotti who encouraged him in his pursuit of classical performance. The rest is history.
Although Michael is a truly
international artist, proficient in 7 languages and traveling across the world
to perform, the vocalist is a devout patriot of his homeland of the United
States. The son of a decorated World War II Army Air Corps veteran, Michael recently
produced an album entitled “Amante Salutes America,” from which all proceeds were
donated to the nation’s disabled veterans.
