"Soprano" Star Dominic Chianese before appearing on the hit HBO TV Series, "The Sopranos" the son of a bricklayer, Chianese was born in the Bronx, New York. He graduated from Bronx High School of Science in 1948 and worked as a bricklayer with his father. Chianese attended night school during the 1950s, graduating with a bachelor's degree in speech and theater from Brooklyn College in 1961. His love of the theatre landed him a gig in 1952 with a Gilbert and Sullivan repertory company of singers, actors and musicians called The American Savoyards, under the direction of Dorothy Raedler.
Chianese is also an accomplished tenor and musician and recently released a CD titled Hits in 2000 which he serenades American and Italian songs.
His latest project is the second season of the HBO series Boardwalk Empire as Leander Whitlock, a retired Atlantic City alderman.
During our interview he talked about his latest endeavor, a nonprofit charity, www.joythroughart.org. The Company's mission is to improve the quality of life for residents of nursing homes through regular interaction with professional artists trained in music and theater. The residents are typically unable to leave their facilities to attend "live" musical or theatrical performances. As a result many residents do not have access to a vibrant social support system to satisfy their emotional needs.
