Hi Dan, maybe 8 yrs, but you did it! Good luck with your performance. Yes, it certainly does feed the soul. Even the new Lottery ad is something I enjoy. "Make Someone Happy" sung by Jimmy Durante. Just love that tune. Can't recall what it's from. Will check it out. Read that "La Forza del Destino" had its World premiere in St. Petersburg, Russia on this day in 1862. "Oh, tu che in seno agli angeli", a Mario recording. Wonder why Russia was chosen.

I wanted to say that I was listening to Bjorling sing Qual Occhi Al Mondo on the Artists and Duets CD. I found that his reciording sounded just like the Lanza recording, Mario could have done it on stage.

Suzanne, I agree great CD.

Suzanne: the rehearsal was fabulous, and I am looking forward to presenting "Pieta Signore" to our Music Study Group on Dec 8th...to perform again is truly uplifting and enriches the spirit...to give something from within to others who might enjoy your offering is truly enobling...a 'raison d'etre'...so to speak; that is if my legs hold out...!
 by the way...I graduated from NYS University in 1977!
I went on the GI Bill, couldn't afford it otherwise...took me 8 years part time...

Living in sunny south. Temps in the high 60s. Some rain predicted for Sun. Singing with a chapter.of Sweet Adelines in Mobile. CHRISTMAS program Sat. eve. When We sing God Rest ...Gentlemen. I can hear Mario and see him singing it too. I love the "baby song"as College always referred to the Guardian Angels tune. In Sweet Adelines' lingo.....Break lip! when you sing!

Hi Dan. Hope the rehearsal went well. My son is on his way to Albany for the weekend to stay with a friend, Prof at Albany State. Don't know if you've had the snow. We finally got hit last eve and a little this morning, but thankful not as Buffalo did. My heart goes out to them and I hope the warming trend won't be disastrous.Vincent, listened again. Charming photos, not camera shy, I see! The Communion photo reminiscent of Mario's. Like the uniformed one, especially the beret. Had no idea Scotland ever had such Arctic temps. For Martino, please be careful of Bambi! You could camp out in our backyard and take your quota of deer in no time. I wouldn't be too happy about it!Ed. See You in My Dreams one of the best. I listened and listened to it a couple of weeks ago.Priceless Mario.

I've been listening to your CD I'll See You In My Dreams it is filled with all favorites of mine. It's Mario with that raw natural sound in each recording. Thanks Jeff this surely is a winner.

After a month of traveling around on hunting trips as I do each fall, I finally got to a computer to check in. I am now in an area not too far from some of you in upstate NY (Finger Lakes Region) where I have owned a hunting camp and land for many years. Lots of cold and wind but we too have escaped most of the snow that has hit areas just an hour or so from me.

I have not gone back in posts very far but I'm glad to see Vincent and Sam posting again. Keep singing my friend and don't forget me if you make more CDs! Can't wait to get back and be able to hear you on youtube - I'm sure your son has done a great job in the uploads as he always does.

Thanks Vince...yes, 40 yrs of only high B flats in my repertoire...
So, most of the tenor repertoire was denied me all those years..."I could have been a contender, I could have been champ"...to quote a well known movie dialogue..ha ha and to quote another old saw;
"The saddest words of tongue or pen, and just these few: "It might have been!""

Thanks Vincent, the only regret I have at 80 yrs old is that I didn't start voice lessons earlier...right out of high school, instead of waiting until I was in my 40's...wasted a lot of years!
As far as the High C is concerned, just glad that I finally have one...Happy Thanksgiving all!

Hi Vincent: We are devoid of snow here in Albany at present, thank God...we are scheduled for 50 degree weather on Sunday? wow...what a season already and it isn't really winter yet??? They haven't even picked up my leaves yet! I am glad someone beside myself likes my singing? ha ha and thank you Suzanne for thinking of me...going to my first rehearsal today...of Pieta Signore by Stradella...wish me luck...leg and hip still bothering me, but I don't sing with the hip thank God...ha ha Only for a Hip Hip Hurray...ha ha Vincent; my favorite Mario song from his Christmas Album is "Guardian Angels" written by Harpo Marx...beautiful, simple but beautiful...most beautiful things are the simplest n'est-ce pas??? On a sad note: The 29th of this month would have been my wife's and myself's 50th wedding anniversary...God granted me the love of a beautiful lady for 43 years, of which I am always truly grateful...Rest in Peace my love...

Placido Domingo performed at La Scala tonight, with Piero Barone of Il Volo in attendance, proud to have photo with his idol.
