The Catholic New World


My friend and columnist for The Catholic New World, Dolores Madlener, noted my involvement as the AOAs spokesperson on 3 D Vision Syndrome (when our eyes feel bad after watching a 3D movie) in her Church Clips column.

She mentioned that: ".... R U Dizzy yet? — Dominick Maino, a tenor in St. Benedict’s choir (W. Irving Park), has a lot to say about 3-D movies these days. Maino, editor of the journal of the College of Optometrists, is a professor at the Illinois Eye Institute/Illinois College of Optometry. As an expert in binocular vision, he’s recently been quoted in US News & World Report (Sept. 21, 2010) and ABCNews/Health website, about some viewers’ physical reactions to movies like “Avatar,” and “Toy Story 3.” Google his name and US News & World Report for an interesting assessment of “sickening” flicks. It isn’t just your imagination..... "

Although I have sung with the choir from St. Benedict's (along with members of the Apollo Choir and others), most of my tenor-izing has been at my home parish of St. Bartholomew.

St. Benedict's Opera Gala with me singing in the choir....I am not a soloist.... I am in the middle of all the other tenors...so look carefully at some of the videos below!
