Martino: I am boring the residents her at the physical therapy site with my songs...ha ha I never had such an appreciative audience...hopefully, I can come back with a program together with my resident soprano and an accompanist...I know I would love it and I am sure they would appreciate it...you know, it takes a special kind of person to work in places like this...to care for others... I would be scared to accidently hurt someone in my efforts...they will have a special place in Heaver for all their good works...

You well deserve any award you get, Bill. congratulations!

Dan, I am very glad to hear you are doing well after your hip operation. The physical therapy after the operation is a very important part of the deal, so be sure to do your exercises as prescribed.

It's a beautiful day here in Annapolis, so I'm taking a break from school work to listen to opera and enjoy the weather! I hope you all are doing well.

Here's Si, pel ciel for you to enjoy!

Thanks for the kind words about the award. It's greatly appreciated. As I'm sure everyone knows it's a labor of love with me. Mario's been a part of my life since I first discovered him at the age of 7 and to be recognized like this at the premiere Italian festival in the US was very touching. Best. Bill

I SPENT SEVERAL HOURS IN JUNE AT THE ENRICO CARUSO MEMORIAL MUSEUM IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK. ALDO SPOKE OF MANY INCIDENTS IN THE LIFE OF TENOR ENRICO CARUSO AND PLAYED SEVERAL ANCIENT VICTROLA INSTRUMENST THAT SOUNDED BEAUTIFUL WITH CARUSO'S VOICE.. THE MUSEUM HAS MANY WONDERFUL ARTIFACTS FROM THE LIKE OF CARUSO AND I FEEL THAT ALL OPERA LOVERS SHOULD MAKE IT A POINT TO VISIT IT WHEN THEY COME TO NEW YORK.

WE ALSO VISITED THE MARIO LANZA MUSEUM IN SOUTH PHILADELPHIA IN JULY AND ENJOYED THE TOUR.

BEST,

MATT MINZER IN 88 DG. SOUTHEAST FLORIDA.

Dan, I knew your hip replacement would be a piece of cake for a tough old bird like you! You sound like you are in good spirits and well on your way to total recovery. Keep us posted on your progress.

Bill, a wonderful and important award. There are few people in the world who have done as much as you have to preserve and promote the Lanza legacy. Congratulations on a much deserved recognition.

Bill: Mario's legacy is in good hands with the dedicated work you perform for the Mario Lanza Society of NY and for the Lanza Museum in Philadelphia. Congratulations for a well deserved award! Bravo to the Figli di San Gennaro for honoring Elaine Malbin and Aldo Mancusi. Now there's a threesome of merit!!

Pity about Elaine's illness, but you, Bill, are well deserving of honor for your tireless work. Aldo, I am not too familiar with.

On Thursday September 18th, Elaine Malbin, Aldo Mancusi and I were honored by the Figli di San Gennaro at the Enrico Caruso Opera Night during the 88th Annual San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy in NYC. I was very proud to receive this award as was Aldo and the concert was wonderful. Unfortunaley Elaine was ill and could not attend. Best, Bill

HI DAN:

WE KNEW THAT YOU WOULD RECOVER QUICKLY. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR SINGINE A FEW SELECTIONS AT MY OPERA GROUP AT ABERDEEN IN JANUARY OR FEBRUARY.

I AM EXCITED ABOUT THE GREAT METROPOLITAN OPERA OPENING NEXT WEEK AND LOOK FORWARD TO READING THE NEW YORK TIMES REVIEWS EACH MORNING ESPECIALLY VERDI'S "MACBETH" STARRING THE BEAUTIFUL AND WONDERFUL, ANNA NETREBKO AS LADY MACBETH. I HOPE TO SEE THE HI-DEF TRANSMISSION WHEN WE ARE VISITING THE SMOKEY MOUNTAINS FOR THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 11TH AT BREVARD COLLEGE (A MUSIC COLLEGE). THE TIMESHARE LOCATED ABOUT THIRTY MINUTES AWAY FROM BREVARD WARNED US THAT BEARS HAVE BEEN SEEN LAST NIGHT ON THE PORCHES LOOKING FOR FOOD. IT SHOULD BE COOL AND DIFFERENT FROM THE OCCASIONAL BLACK SNAKES AND IGUANAS WHICH WE HAVE IN THE YARD.
BEST
