Workshop AND Masterclass on Singing Italian repertoire After a long time, and many requests,I decided to stop thinking about it and actually doing it. On the 21st of April, from 10:30 to 16:30 I am going to run a workshop on Singing Italian Repertoire. I will be joined by estimated colleague, baritone Gerardo Spinelli. It will be great fun and something that is broadly needed to many aspiring singers (and professionals too, may I say) and I am so excited we can deliver it. From the 22nd to the 26th, also, we'll run a Masterclass to help singers making their arias and songs bulletproof for any audition and to showcase in a final concert. It will be also a way to see if we have the right voices to put on an Opera in the following months. We called our venture "Tutti all'Opera", which means Everyone to the Opera... but also Everyone to... work! So, let's roll up those sleeves and put ourselves to work!

Been away for a while, I know. Well, let's try to start again, somewhere... You know? I am on a detox. Not a fad one. A proper scientific one.. and boy if it works! I am on my 10th day and I am full of energy, not hungry (at least not physically, if you know what I mean), my ability to exercise and recover from exercise has improved, I have lost weight and the pain in joints and at the back upon waking up in the morning that I have always had for the last 8 years. I have 11 more days. Will keep you updated. What else? Ah, soon I am going to come out with a recording, with orchestra. That's exciting!
