She has performed with the Folksbiene Yiddish Theater in New York City and was featured as a soloist under the direction of Zalmen Mlotek. She also is a member of a trio called Ashirawhich tours North America, performing both secular and non-secular music and services.

Tenor Anthony Caputo, a native of New York City, recently completed his Graduate work at SUNY Purchase College Conservatory of Music where he studied under the tutelage of Jacque Trussel. Operatic highlights from Anthony’ time at Purchase include: Balthazar and Melchior in Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors, Antonio in Mozart’s La Nozze di Figaro, Mercurio in Monteverdi’s L’Incoronazione di Poppea, Prince Ferdinand in the East Coast Premiere of Holby’s The Tempest, Father Francis in the World Premiere of Lucas’ Confession, Pappageno in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Le Directeur in Poulenc’s Les Mamelles de Tiresias, Escamillo in Bizet’s Carmen and Pandolfe in Massenet’s Cendrillon.

In 2008, Albany Records recorded The Tempest by Lee Holby, on which Anthony sang the Principal role of Prince Ferdinand, in conjunction with the release of the opera. The following year, Anthony made his New York City singing debut in the same role at Symphony Space in a condensed version of the opera. He also performed in a “Salon Series” promoting the recording of The Tempest at Opera America later that year. The performances of The Tempest were televised on NBC as well. In the spring of 2010, Anthony was a featured singer in a Master Class given by the world renowned Bass-Baritone Samuel Ramey. The following spring, he performed the role of Florestan in Gretry’s Richard Coeur-de-Lion with the American Classical Orchestra in Manhattan. This year, the Ash Lawn Opera Festival accepted Anthony as one of the Young Artists to perform at its Summer Festival with director Bayoork Lee, David Paul and Maestro Steve Jarvi.

The Enrico Caruso Room was dedicated in April of this year in Little Italy’s historic Grotta Azzurra Ristorante which first opened its doors in 1908. It soon became a favorite eatery for the legendary Neapolitan tenor Enrico Caruso who often dined – and sang – in this very same room. The walls are decorated with memorabilia from the Enrico Caruso Museum of America in Brooklyn which was donated by the museum’s founder and curator Cav. Aldo Mancusi.
