Originally from a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, Lorenzo is of Maltese, German, and Czechoslovakian descent. His father's parents immigrated from Malta in the early 1900's, and settled in the Detroit area. A graduate of Gabriel Richard High School and then a voice performance major at Wayne State University (WSU), Lorenzo went on to study voice privately and was selected to perform in apprentice programs with opera companies such as Santa Fe Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Michigan Opera Theatre, and Opera Omaha. At WSU, he was a part of the 1985 Award Winning Men's Glee Club who won 1st Place at the International Musical Eisteddfod, Llangollen, Wales.
In 1987 he was selected as a cantor in the celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy with Pope John Paul II at the Pontiac Silverdome, Michigan. Moving to Chicago to pursue his singing career in the mid 90's, Lorenzo has established himself as a versatile artist who delights audiences in opera, musical theater, and in concert. In September 2001, the Aon Corporation called upon Lorenzo to sing their memorial service at the Cathedral of St. Patrick, New York, honoring their employee's lost in the 9/11 tragedy at the World Trade Center.
Lorenzo resides in Northbrook, IL, a suburb of Chicago. In addition to stage and concert performances around the country and the Chicagoland area, he is a soloist at Park Ridge Community Church - Park Ridge, Illinois. He was a member of Chicago's 2016 Olympic Bid Committee serving as the Guest Services Manager between 2006 - 2009, and currently works in IT Security for USBank.
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
- Theodore Roosevelt
