Contestant: Anthony Santomauro

Coach: Tracey Marble

At age 13 Anthony was dropped from a high school choral performance of Faust because of a “bad” voice. Traumatized for life, in his sixties he decided to study voice, first with Pat Brown, then with former Met Opera soloist Tom Woodman. Initially thought a baritone, it was finally decided he is a tenor. He has performed before large audiences on Long Island and in many Musicales, enjoying a large repertoire from opera to Broadway. Singing is his passion and hobby. He is a noted active professional artist and retired physician. His inspiration is his partner, Jeffrey Hoffman.
