About
I am a singer, a Tenor, who sings International songs in nine languages: English, Italian, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Yiddish, Hebrew and Latin. I also sing Operatic arias, Operettas, Standards, Broadway Hits, Old Time Favorites and in sing-a-long sessions. In Italy I have performed with two Italian Opera companies, singing various operatic roles as a soloist in several opera productions. In America, I have performed several operatic roles with various opera companies. I sing with the American Center for Puccini Studies and with the Medical Musical Group whose mission is to perform "Music with a message"- a message of inspiration, healing and national unity.

I am the Director and Tenor Soloist of the Cantanti Singing Ensemble. We present classically trained singers and instrumentalists in Festivals of various themes. For example: Italian Festivals, Spanish Festivals, Irish Festivals, German Festivals, Jewish Festivals and Festivals of other ethnic groups and themes. We also perform in restaurants, auditoriums, community centers and other venues where people gather for musical entertainment.

I am TV Producer who presents a weekly television series featuring my performances in live shows and musical programs of other musical organizations. As a recording artist I have recorded my music on a number of DVDs and CDs. My music is available through such Internet musical distributors as ITunes, CD Baby, The Orchard, Song Cast and Amazon.

We booked Donato for an Oktoberfest themed engagement party. The communication from the time we booked the event was clear and efficient. The evening of the performance Donato and his two musicians arrived promptly on time, were well dressed, and we found Donato to be very professional in his interaction with us and our guests throughout the evening. The performance was excellent and all of the musicians were extremely talented. We had Donato play for 90 minutes and felt that was an appropriate amount of time. We recommend Donato highly and are grateful for his contribution to our event!

Donato was very professional, arrived on time, and performed as requested. I think the older generation at the event enjoyed the performance more than the younger people attending as Donato represents an older style of singing. I would certainly recommend Donato for an "over 50" crowd but would shy away from recommending highly for a younger audience.

This is a real talented group - sound equipment not good for big halls - Donato is a true professional that will bend over backwards to accommodate the needs of the party.

Donato himself was very charming and accommodating. Unfortunately, his pianist was a no-show, which was a big disappointment.

Everyone at the party loved Donato. He really puts on a show versus background singing. He had another singer with him as well as an accompanist. They were all terrific. Donato is filled with personality and charm. He really is an entertainer. Loved him!
