Joseph Donnantuoni suggests for your event to carefully listen to the voices you pick to choose from. Joseph's voice can be heard on youtube or if this site is updated their are links for video and some audio. Joseph prefers to sing his own lineup of songs and due to his song list of over 100 arias and songs, sometimes the music he knows already fits your occasion.
Mr. Donnantuoni has an exceptional voice! He arrived on time and gave a well-received acapella performance of Italian songs, with many "Bravos." I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to engage him again!
Response from Joseph Donnantuoni:
My favorite part was meeting such nice members joining and the eggplant Parmesan and the veggie lasagna Gourmet cooked by Judy Stern along with her green and caprese salads were so good my wife and I wanted to cry. But we kissed instead. :)
Joseph is a wonderful singer. He very graciously agreed to sing the special lyrics we wrote for O' sole mio. Party guests loved it, and the birthday girl was thrilled!
I booked Joseph as a singing telegram to surprise my partner for her birthday currently working in USA... As I Live in the UK Joseph went to extra lengths to allow the surprise to be the best it could be by even getting a card and balloon etc. His voice was amazing singing happy birthday and then Nessun Dorma, my partner loved the surprise. Many thanks Joseph.
I had the opportunity to hear Joseph perform at a recent town hall meeting and what a delight. His voice was right on key (I have been a piano player for 32 years) and he delivered each note with grace. I have been to many operas throughout Southern California and Joseph could lead any of them. Look forward to hearing you again. Thank You!!

What to Expect
Joseph is able to sing if there are no long waiting periods, food available and proper equipment of the right grade for vast vocal ability to not be hampered. There were 69000 opera houses in the year 1900. Now there are 1239 in the USA. If you have the atmosphere to support the arts in your event then Joseph will be the one to hire.
Joseph Donnantuoni, please listen to the songs (audio for direct voice review simple recording used) and camcorder video.

Influences & Inspiration
I am influenced mainly by my Mom. She won the American Opera auditions in 1957 and was then trained by Giovanni Martinelli. I also can hear what these singers do inside their voices: Enrico Caruso, Mario Lanza, Beniamino Gigli, Giovanni Martinelli and yes Andrea Bocelli. I will sing for you Time to Say Goodbye - in Italian, or HEBREW
