But Andy Anselmo, the West Side native who made all of them better singers, is a name that even lifelong Western New Yorkers might never have heard before.
Thats about to change.
The Community Music School, long a fixture on Elmwood Avenue and the place where Anselmo got his start, is about to rename itself the Andy Anselmo Center for the Performing Arts.
Isnt it exciting? Anselmo said.
...
Anselmo recently made a seven-figure commitment to the school, a donation that will spearhead fundraising efforts. He will also be one of the performers at a concert at Canisius Colleges Montante Cultural Center at 7 p.m. Jan. 14 an event that will kick off a campaign that seeks to raise $3.5 million.
In June 2016, money permitting, the school plans to initiate renovations that will increase its visibility from the street. Also in the plans is a performing arts space on the third floor that would seat 150 to 200 people. Ideally, the renovations will be complete by June 2017.
Anselmo has plans for the school. He anticipates inviting singers and teachers from New York to give master classes, and doing everything he can to ensure that what he has learned is passed on.
My vision of the school is like the vision I had for the New York school, which was to give someone who wants to be a singer all the tools they really need, he said. They have to develop their voice and their projection. They had to know how to act, know how to move. All the things that make a musical person work properly.
The change in the schools name will certainly raise the name recognition of Anselmo, who is well known in the vocal music community for founding the Singers Forum, a famous Manhattan vocal school that he led for decades. He returned to Western New York in 2011 and, at 91, continues to teach and perform.
He first walked into Buffalos Community Music School when he was 16.
It was as if I was home, he recalled Thursday, emotion in his voice. There was something about the feeling of the school. It was elegant, and classy, and the people were so wonderful. It was like a whole different world opened up.
The school sent Anselmo on to the renowned pedagogue, William Whitney, in Boston, Mass.
...
I just fell into the place in my first lesson with him, Anselmo said. It was uncanny. That was my voice.
But it was as a teacher that Anselmo discovered his true calling. He found it upon meeting Geraldine Fitzgerald, the actress featured in the 1939 classic Wuthering Heights.
I had a crush on her when I was 14, he confessed.
Starstruck on meeting the flame-haired Irish actress, who he said was still beautiful, he ended up offering to teach her to sing.
She was just sweet and we just hit it off, he explained. She said nobody would teach her singing because they said she had no voice.
...
Anselmo remained in that partnership for 18 years before founding the Singers Forum, in 1978.
Anselmo is one of the musicians included in the Community Music Schools Hall of Fame.
...
Anselmo, meanwhile, said he is looking forward to the January concert.
Ive started to warm up and vocalize, he laughed.

Tickets to the Jan. 14 concert at the Montante Center are $40. VIP tickets are $100 and include premium seating and post-event reception/birthday party for Anselmo, whose birthday is three days later.
