Celebrating Mario Lanza and Enrico Caruso

Event Navigation

The Hammer and SJSU honor the legacy of famous 20th Century vocalists Mario Lanza and Enrico Caruso. Dr. Fred Cohen, Pasquale Esposito, and Joseph Frank come together to recount their lives through music!

Mario Lanza and Enrico Caruso made names for themselves as opera and movie stars. Lanza was awarded two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Caruso has received accolades from monarchs to cultural organizations all over the world.
