Q and A
|Raised in Jackson, NJ, Mark began his musical journey singing in the Sunday Choir. His first solo was during Midnight Mass at 7 years old. He sang through childhood, did the show Oliver and was hooked on performing. At 13, his parents gave him a guitar for Christmas. He taught himself to play to accompany his singing. During High School, he sang every place he could and for anyone who would listen, Folk Masses, graduations, choir, musicals, and his favorite place to sing, the stairwell. He went to Boston University to learn how to sing "correctly". He got a great education in classical style, learned how to read music, and was exposed to Opera and Oratorio as a performer. Upon graduation, he was presented with the award for Vocal Excellence, an award he shares with Jay Alger, now a Broadway coach and conductor. He followed his degree from BU with a Master of Music degree from Rutgers University, attending on a "Brendan Byrne Fellowship". During his graduate years he continued his studies of classical singing, performing in Opera, Operetta and Oratorio. He began teaching voice during these graduate years. After graduation, Mark performed, doing anything and everything that came his way. He did over 2500 performances at Six Flags Great Adventure, including Emcee for High Dive, Water Ski, Chinese Acrobat, and Dolphin Shows; Singing and dancing in a Vaudeville Revue, back up singing for Andy Williams, and singing top 40 with "Touch of Brass". While working at Great Adventure, and performing in West Side Story at night, he met his bride, Rosemary Sikora. He has spread his performance wings with roles in Carmen, The Barber of Seville, Man of La Mancha, Jesus Christ Superstar, West Side Story, and Madame Butterfly, to name a few. In 1994, he began singing with the Metropolitan Opera Chorus, and has shared the stage with the greatest opera singers in the world.
