About Patric Hale
We are proud to present here a very special collection of music CDs by a world-class "Meistersinger" — Patric Hale, stage name Caranza.

What does “Meistersinger” mean? A Meistersinger must sing at least four genres of music equally well in at least three languages. Caranza sings twelve genres in seven languages. Indeed, Caranza’s repertoire ranges from the rock ’n’ roll songs of Elvis and others, to the crooners Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Dean Martin, to Broadway, Neapolitan and German songs, and all the way to most of Italian, French and German opera—as both tenor and baritone!

Patric Hale grew up in a small town in Connecticut. Music was always a part of his upbringing, since his father was a well-known disc jockey for over 20 years and his mother a classical pianist.

He left the U.S. at the age of 19. He spent a year studying in Aix-en-Provence, France, and then three years in West Berlin during the Cold War, where he completed a B.A. (Valedictorian) in Political Science and European History at Schiller College. He finished his M.A. in International Relations and Business with further studies in Strasbourg and Paris.

It was during his studies in Berlin that Patric attended his first opera, Verdi’s Il Trovatore. After this experience, although he had sung in public since he was a boy, he immediately decided that he wanted to sing opera. He began studying music with the renowned Czech-American composer, Gerald Humel.

When Patric moved to Paris, he began his more formal voice studies with Robert Behrman, an American Wagnerian tenor and vocal disciplinarian. Since then, Patric has sung throughout Europe and other parts of the world at concerts, music festivals, corporate parties, and other events large and small.

After 27 years of living and singing in Europe, Patric returned to the USA and was reunited with the man who had taken him to his first opera in Berlin, Richard Hogrefe of Boston, also a Wagnerian tenor, with whom he continued his studies. It was Hogrefe who described Patric’s voice as a wonderful cross between the operatic voice of Caruso and the popular voice of Mario Lanza, and that’s how Caranza was born.

Since returning to America, Caranza has sung at many concerts, charity events, and private and corporate events throughout the USA, as well as returning to Europe on many occasions.

In July 2006 he was a winner at the NY Mario Lanza Competition. He’s been the featured singer at the Mario Lanza Society of New York’s annual event ever since. In 2007, he sang the National Anthem at an event in Connecticut in honor of and in the presence of former President Bill Clinton, whose comment afterwards was simply, “Wow!” In 2009, Caranza was invited to Philadelphia to sing at the International Mario Lanza Association’s gala 50th anniversary commemorating Mario Lanza’s passing.
