Photo Coverage: New York Tenors Play Long Island!
Since the inception of The Three Tenors on July 7, 1990 in Rome at the Baths of Caracalla on the eve of the FIFA World Cup Final, Plácido Domingo, José Carreras and the one and onlyLuciano Pavarotti; have opened the doors for other great voices, such as the Irish Tenors, The Canadian Tenors and many other talented and renowned performers. Now three of New York's premier voices, Andy Cooney,Daniel RodriguezandMichael Amante have joined together to honor the city of New York and our great nation as the one and only "New York Tenors".
Daniel Rodriguez, "America's Beloved Tenor" Came to light during one of the darkest times of our nation's history. He was the New York City police officer whose amazing voice comforted a grieving nation in the days following 9-11-2001. He continues to inspire, stir and embrace his listeners through his recordings and memorable live concert performances. Andy Cooney, christened "Irish America's Favorite Son" by the New York Times, is a title he truly deserves. Andy has been taking the Irish American scene by storm for the last 20 years. His unique tenor voice has been heard in concert halls internationally, including two sold out performances in New York's Carnegie Hall.
Michael Amante, affectionately known as "The People's Tenor", is a combination of All-American looks, romantic Italian charm and an incredible voice. Legendary performer Tony Bennett is quoted saying, "Michael's remarkable range of notes and his ability to sing everything from opera to Broadway to contemporary, gives this tenor an intimate connection with anyone who hears him." The New York Tenors combine the artistry of three men who alone are superb, but together provide an overwhelming, ‘can't-miss' showcase of some of the world's greatest vocalists and repertoire. The group performed at the John J. BurnsPark, Massapequa, NY on July 31, 2012 and Broadwayworld.com was there to cover the event For more information, visit www.oysterbaytown.com.
