Franco reinvents the music of Italian & American crooners, transforming past masterpieces into modern treasures. After sellout audiences at Caesar’s Atlantic City, Mar-a-Lago, the Columbus Foundation and countless theaters and stages across the US and Europe, Franco’s new Concert Tour takes you on a Musical Journey , from Bocelli to Phantom, where ‘Italy Meets Broadway‘.
Appropriately dubbed ‘The Voice of Romance’, Corso hypnotizes audiences with sensual powerful range (baritone to tenor), dramatic presence and charismatic showmanship.
His musical talent has been labeled Powerful, Enchanting, and Sophisticated. While all these are true, they are a result of something that cuts deeper into the source. Corso’s music is passion personified, a raw emotion that comes through in his singing, which is palpable. Corso has built a music career channeling the charisma and passion of Italian-American singers, effectively transforming past masterpieces into modern treasures. His voice recalls the era when crooners ruled the music industry and avid listeners went weak in the knees at love songs laden with raw emotion.
His classical crossover repertoire in four languages (English, Italian, Spanish and French) transcends generations.
Franco’ many career highlights was his sold-out concert at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston, prior to a successful Tv Campaign aired on NBC and CBS where Franco was accompanied by multi Emmy award music composer and Tony Bennett’s musical director Mike Renzi. Franco’s rendition of Bocelli’s ‘Time To Say Goodbye’ was featured on ABC during the 73th Annual Columbus Day Red Carpet event and presented by Joe Piscopo and Maria Bartiromo.
His inspirations are drawn from classics such as Caruso and Bocelli along with the allure of Josh Groban and Julio Iglesias. These influences are blended together as he takes audiences on a ‘Musical Journey Through Italy’ in his acclaimed sellout concert Tour throughout the US. Corso’s talent is galvanized with his multi-lingual finesse and the unique ability to hold a very long note.

It is a testament to his passion and perseverance, but mostly it is a realization of a dream that a talented 6-year-old boy had in Italy while singing in his church choir many years ago.
