Saturday February 1, 2014
Mario Lanza Museum
Please join us for a special afternoon remembering Mario’s birthday at his museum. There will be coffee, cake and other goodies and Lanza’s recordings will be played. A tour of the museum will also be available for all to enjoy. For more information please call 215-238-9691 or email email@example.com.
The Mario Lanza Institute honors the memory of the late, great singer by sponsoring scholarships to promising young singers to further their training and careers. More than 200 scholarships have been awarded and many of the recipients have gone on to perform at major opera houses.
The scholarships are awarded to winners of an annual competition. Vocal auditions are held in October. In November, a Mario Lanza Institute announces the winners at the annual Ball.
The Institute also houses a museum featuring photos and artifacts related to Mario Lanza. Holdings include clothing worn by Mario, original movie posters, boxing gloves he used in his youth, and some of his gold records
